Meet our EAB Members: Kusha Tiwari
14 November 2019
After the continued success of the Meet our Authors segment, as well as the introduction in October of the Meet the Publisher feature, we’d like to invite you for the first time to Meet our EAB Members. Our Editorial Advisory Boards (EABs) contain scholars from all over the world and cover more than 300 academic disciplines, from Dentistry to Robotics and Plant Ecology to Banking.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr Kusha Tiwari, Assistant Professor at the University of Delhi and member of our Women's and Gender Studies Advisory Board.
Kusha has published research papers with Taylor & Francis, SAGE, IUP, and in the monthly magazine The Book Review. Her first monograph, based on her PhD thesis, was Narrative of Liberation: Reading Nadine Gordimer’s Post-apartheid Fiction (2015), Since then she has published Critical Perspectives on Toni Morrison (2018) and Towards a Sustainable Future: Cross-cultural Practices, Strategies and Advancements (2019).
Dr Tiwari’s collaboration thus far with Cambridge Scholars has been extremely positive:
“My experience of working with Cambridge Scholars Publishing has been very satisfying and rewarding. They are a pioneering international press that not only publish the work of well-established authors but also give opportunities to first-time authors. They are very professional and publish titles in diverse subject fields. I am thoroughly impressed by the range and scope of their titles as well as by the rich list of reviewers and authors who have worked with or are working with them.
My upcoming book with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Gender and Popular Culture: Identity Constructions and Representations, is still in the publication process and will be out soon. I am waiting eagerly to see the end product of our collaboration. I am hoping that this will be the beginning of a long and fruitful association that will see many more collaborations. I am also privileged to be part of their Editorial Advisory Board and hope to contribute further in that capacity in the near future.”

Meet our Authors: Gianmarco Vignozzi
14 November 2019
Gianmarco Vignozzi holds a PhD in English Linguistics from the University of Pisa, Italy, where he teaches English Language and Linguistics in the Department of Law. His areas of specialisation and research interests lie in English for specific purposes (ESP) and corpus linguistics, ranging from political discourse and filmic discourse analysis to corpus stylistics and audio-visual translation.
His latest research works focus on the representation of spoken medical discourse in TV medical dramas and on the potentiality of multimodal stimuli to teach figurative expressions to foreign learners of English.
He published his first monograph with Cambridge Scholars earlier this year. Assessing the Language of TV Political Interviews analyses the most distinctive linguistic features defining the genre of British and American TV-mediated political interviews.
Gianmarco describes his experience of publishing his first academic book with Cambridge Scholars:
“Being a novice academic and deciding to publish a monograph immediately after a PhD could be very tough and chaotic. That is why choosing the right publisher is key to having a successful experience. From the very beginning, after getting in touch with the commissioning editor who provided me with all the essential information – from what should be in the book proposal to the submission of the full manuscript – I felt I was in good hands.
This initial feeling was confirmed by the professionalism, seriousness and celerity with which the proposal was assessed by the advisory board, the manuscript was proofread by the prepress department, and the formatting completed by the typesetting team. The book cover was another thing that I appreciated very much. The fact that the publishing house has its own design team ready to satisfy the author’s requests leaves much space for customisation.
For these reasons, I can say that publishing my first scholarly book with Cambridge Scholars was a wonderful experience that I would not hesitate to recommend to all my colleagues looking for a publisher to take care of their research.”

Meet our Authors: Malcolm Tozer
14 November 2019
“Reading Tozer is stimulating. Like all good authors, when he doesn’t have the answer, he sets the reader the right question.”
- Dr Joseph Spence
Malcolm Tozer taught physics and physical education at Uppingham School in Rutland from 1966 until 1989. For six years from 1989 he was the founding headmaster of Northamptonshire Grammar School in Northampton and then headmaster of Wellow House School in Nottinghamshire for a further ten years from 1995.
Since 2005 he has led inspections for the Independent Schools Inspectorate, served for ten years as a governor at Repton School and Foremarke Hall, both in Derbyshire, and promoted partnerships in physical education and sport between state and independent schools.
He is the author of The Ideal of Manliness (2015) and Education in Manliness (2018) and the editor of Physical Education and Sport in Independent Schools (2012). In spring this year, he published the volume Edward Thring’s Theory, Practice and Legacy: Physical Education in Britain since 1800 to much critical acclaim (some of which you can read here).
A Sport in History review noted that: “Those familiar with Malcolm Tozer’s previous works on Thring will not be surprised to know that this very readable, elegantly produced and delightfully illustrated book fully meets its author’s goal of furthering our understanding of Thring, his practice and his legacy. [The work] provides an important and timely re-evaluation of the role of physical education at Thring’s Uppingham, while further examining the legacy of that role in the present practice of physical education.”
Malcolm described his experience with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:
“It was a pleasure to receive the invitation from Cambridge Scholars Publishing to prepare a new and expanded edition of my earlier book on physical education at Uppingham School in the nineteenth century and to incorporate the legacy of its innovative theory and practice within a broad history of physical education in Britain from 1800 until the present day.
Advice from colleagues at CSP on how to produce the book to the publisher’s specifications was always swift and helpful; the final typesetting was most attractive; and the eye-catching design of the cover exceeded my expectations. The marketing of the book could not have been better – whether informing scholars in the field and university departments of the book’s date of publication or arranging for announcements and reviews to be published in a dozen educational newspapers and academic journals. If the book does not sell, it will not be the fault of CSP.”
To celebrate Malcolm Tozer’s work, we’re offering a 50% discount on Edward Thring’s Theory, Practice and Legacy until December 15th. To claim your discount, simply enter the code ‘MOANOV19’ when purchasing the book on our website.
