Outstanding Academic Titles

At the American Library Association’s Midwinter meeting, Choice magazine announced its complete list of Outstanding Academic Titles from the year just ended. Included on the list are two titles from our Rotunda electronic imprint: The Digital Temple, which presents the poetry of George Herbert in a fully annotated digital edition, and The Papers of Eliza Lucas Pinckney and Harriott Pinckney Horry, an online archive of the correspondence between two founding-era women and members of one of South Carolina’s leading families. Also included on the list were Dialect Diversity in America: The Politics of Change by pioneering linguist William Labov and Public Nature: Scenery, History, and Park Design edited by Ethan Carr, Shaun Eyring, and Richard Guy Wilson. The publications deemed Outstanding Academic Titles represent the top ten percent of the hundreds reviewed each year by Choice.
