Working papers

This is the official working paper series of the ESRC Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change (CRESC). The working paper series is intended to provide a forum for debate and discussion. All of the papers published in the series have been subjected to peer review and comment within CRESC in order to maintain quality. These are working papers which will in most cases be revised before or after submission for publication in a learned journal. The papers published here do not necessarily appear in their final form and appearance as a CRESC paper does not preclude revision for submission to another forum.

Please note that the working papers are the property of CRESC and should not be reproduced for publication in any other format. If you are interested in publishing any of the papers please get in touch with the author or authors who will in most cases already submitted this paper for publication in a learned journal.

CRESC working papers are freely available on-line to all members of CRESC and all other visitors to our website and should not be re-sold. When cited elsewhere for the purposes of research, CRESC working papers should be acknowledged.

The CRESC Working Papers are available to download in pdf format. You will need to have Adobe Acrobat 6.0 or above to read the files
