All of the items sold by Emergent Publications are produced on-demand. That means, whenever you place an order for a physical product, i.e., not a download only product such as an e-book, that product is manufactured especially for you. This means we do not have to maintain warehouse facilities to store large print runs of books, which means we can offer better pricing than many of the established academic publishers. The upshot of this is that we have a no returns policy on all our products. So, be certain when you make a purchase!
