Stuart Holroyd bibliography

This bibliography is far from complete. I believe that it does contain all of the books that Stuart Holroyd has written, but he wrote many more articles than are listed here. Please email me at antoni.dillerREMOVE@cantabREMOVE.net with any information that you may have about any of these. Elsewhere I have provided a brief introduction to Stuart Holroyd's life and ideas.
