Michael Duane The Original Book The Sequel


BOOK UPDATE, November 2018.

We are pleased to announce that Risinghill Revisited (RR) is, at last, finished, and is likely to be published in January/February 2019, March 2019 at the latest, by a respected on-line educational journal with an international reach.  This is an open access not-for-profit journal and as such RR will be free to download, thus making it accessible to a wide audience; something that was of importance to us as the messages in RR are as relevant today as they were fifty years ago, possibly more so given what is happening in state schools today.  

Nearer the time, we will provide more details about the journal and when RR will be available to download.  If it proves to be a success, there is no reason why RR cannot be published as a book that can be held in the hand, but we would have to make some major adjustments (basically reducing the size of the text by at least a third) for it to be commercially viable, something we need to look at. 

May we take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to RR. Without their support, this project would not have been possible.
