Integrationist Notes and Papers

   •Roy Harris

The purpose of this series was to give a brief position statement from an integrationist perspective on a variety of controversial issues.

Four collections of these papers have been published as paperbacks, Integrationist Notes and Papers 2003-2005, INP 2006-2008, INP 2009-2011and INP 2012.

It was the author's wish that all Integrationist Notes and Papers be available for purchase. However, since his death the remaining copies have been handed over to his Literary Executor Stephen Farrow as part of his Literary Estate. Unfortunately Dr Farrow has refused to honour book purchases made through this website.
