Scholarly (academic) books are a good starting point for your research! They can be an authoritative source of information and provide a comprehensive overview of a topic.

To identify scholarly books ask yourself the following:

      - Does it have a bibliography and references?
      - What are the author's qualifications / affiliations e.g. are they affiliated with a university / institution?
      - Is the publisher reputable e.g. university press or known academic publisher?
      - Does it provide the right / expected scope or depth?
      - Is it useful for this assignment?
