Good news!

Anne has posted a pdf copy of her book for free download on academia.com. Free registration is required.

After 18 months the e-rights reverted back to her, so she created an e-book that is available through Amazon.com for 2.99.

She also intends to create a personal website linked from her Trinity College directory page where any books/articles that she publishes can be accessed for free.
