“I have been working with James Horrox for a number of years. James has edited several of my articles and book chapters, and has also edited the work of several of my colleagues (e.g. PhD theses, journal articles, book chapters etc.). James is probably the best editor I have ever worked with, and I have worked with around 15 professional editors from Australia, the US and the UK. His work has always been of the highest standard. He delivers on time (often several days before deadline), his edits are perfect, and he is often able to improve the arguments I’m trying to convey since he has extensive knowledge of the subjects I’m writing about (sociology, criminology and philosophy).”
