Vexen Crabtree 2015


I was in the British Library, reading through a few select chapters of "Religion in schools: controversies around the world" by R. Murray Thomas.

In one chapter on the controversy surrounding the teaching of humanism, agnosticism and stuff in RE, the author gives a brief history of the summary of religion in the UK... and hey presto, gives a references to (Crabtree, V (2002-2003)), and so I go check the bibliography, and there I am!

Crabtree, V. (2002-2003). Religion in Britain. Bane of Monotheis. Available online: http://www.vexen.co.uk/religion/rib.html#UK

It's the first time I've been an actual book cite me! And it's a good, scholarly, academic sociology-of-religion type book, too! How cool is that? *beams*

Showoff!!! Congratulations :D

aren't they suposed to mail you that?
but still: congrads! ^^


No, when quoting/referencing/using anothers' material, the only thing you have to do is include a proper footnote/biblio entry that states that you're quoting/using someone's work. As long as you say where you got it and the size of material taken is "reasonable", then, you don't have to inform the author that you've done so.

Otherwise, any academic text would require the author to email or snailmail dozens of people, many of whom would be hard to find contact details for!

I think that is way cool. Congratulations!

Well you've certainly earnt some recognition!

Good to see it thrown into an academic book in an academic area (not in the /oddities/ section!)

Excellent! I've always enjoyed your essays, they're always well written and exceedingly well referenced - Glad to see 'official' recognition ;D

What felt good is how random the finding was... it means there must be more out there!
