The Medieval Review

Announcement: Books Available for Review (June 2014)

Dear Readers,

The following books have been received and are available to qualified scholars for review (reviewers should have received a doctoral degree or the equivalent). Our general policy is that the review is expected within three months of your receiving the book, and must be submitted by e-mail.

If you are interested in reviewing one of these books, please send the following information to us at tmrl@indiana.edu, even if you have submitted this information previously:

book you wish to review full name

e-mail address

affiliation or degree

preferred mailing address

"key-words" describing your scholarly interests

a few recent publications (if appropriate)

We request that you not ask to be considered as a reviewer for more than TWO titles.

At this time, due to budget constraints, we will only be able to send books to addresses in the United States. [It currently costs 10 times as much to ship a book beyond the borders of the US.] We plan to resume international shipping with the next list.

Please be aware that compiling and sorting through requests may take several weeks; we appreciate your patience and understanding. Thank you for your support of the The Medieval Review.

Sincerely yours, The TMR Editors
