This year’s Outstanding Academic Title list includes 651 print books and 39 electronic resources chosen by the Choice editorial staff “for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field, and their value as important—often the first—treatment of their subject.”
Congratulations to these authors and editors and to all the UIP staff who worked on these titles.
