Cambria Press wishes one and all Gong Xi Fa Cai for the Chinese New Year.
Today’s Top Review at Choice magazine is Saving American Elections: A Diagnosis and Prescription for a Healthier Democracy by Anthony Gierzynski.
This book is in the Politics, Institutions, and Public Policy in America book series by Scott Frisch and Sean Kelly.
Professor Gray Kochhar-Lindgren (the associate vice chancellor for undergraduate learning and director of the Center for University Studies and Programs at the University of Washington, Bothell, as well as honorary professor at the University of Hong Kong) visited the Cambria Press booth and was pleasantly surprised to see that his book, which was just published, on display along with a poster of the book cover.
It is always great to meet authors in real life, especially so soon after the book project with Cambria Press is wrapped up.
Cambria Press was delighted to have Professor Nathanael O’Reilly visit the Cambria Press booth. Professor O’Reilly’s book Postcolonial Issues in Australian Literature, which was published in 2010, is already earning rave reviews.
In fact, the Journal of the European Association of Studies on Australia praises the book because it provides, “provides a highly representative and high-quality sample of current thinking about the issues in Australian culture it deals with, as well as readings of those issues in terms of specific literary texts … to have published this collection of essays there [in the United States] is to have performed a useful service, for the summarising and contemporary nature of the collection is just the sort of thing hard-pressed libraries might acquire, not only in North America but wherever libraries want an up-to-date and high quality assessment of Australian literature in terms of the post-colonial priorities of the present.”
Professor Sauer is the author of the newly published American Drama and the Postmodern: Fragmenting the Realistic Stage. It was delightful to find that he is every bit as lively and witty in person as he is in his e-mails, which never fail to bring good cheer to all at Cambria Press!
The 2012 MLA annual convention was a very successful one for Cambria Press.The Cambria Press booth was praised for being put together in a very attractive, eye-catching manner. The Cambria Press booth also enjoyed a premium position, which was located right by the entrance. Cambria Press also enjoyed the company of good neighbors–the folks at Harper Collins and Book Forum are wonderful!
Thank you to all who visited our booth, especially the Cambria Press authors (whom we were delighted to see so happy with the exhibit … those will have to be posts all by themselves!) as well so many new faces–thank you for already following up and we look forward to keeping in touch!
We hope everyone had a great time in Seattle!
