Dear all,
I am looking for a development editor for my latest book about cosmopolitanism, sovereignty, international law and politics. It's a multi-disciplinary monograph mainly based on legal and political sciences and international relations.
I would need:
1. Proofreading (grammar, punctuation and use of English).
2. Coherence and cohesion.
3. Development editing if and when necessary.
4. House-style format for footnotes and references (editing will be needed).

The book is around 85,000 words long. 8 chapters in total plus introductory pages.
Deadline to be agreed with the editor. NOTE: this needs to be done within a reasonable time.
Many thanks and best regards.
