[bookshare-discuss] Re: Fordham University Press Has Signed Our Agreement

Pretty cool stuff. Makes me want to go back to school. If I actually had
time to do so that is.

 

Thanks for your continued efforts in getting all sorts of material made
available for reading and not just the latest romance novels and or other
bubble gum titles.

 

Again, thanks,

Cristobal

Subject: [bookshare-discuss] Fordham University Press Has Signed Our
Agreement

 

Hi Everyone,

 

Fordham University Press, founded in 1907 and based in Bronx, New York, has
signed our agreement, giving us world rights to their titles.  They have 300
titles ready to go in EPUB through codeMantra.

 

The Press publishes 60 to 70 books a year and has a backlist of a thousand
titles.  It publishes primarily in the humanities and the social sciences,
with an emphasis on the fields of anthropology, philosophy, theology,
history, classics, communications, economics, sociology, business, political
science, and law, as well as literature and the fine arts. Additionally, the
Press publishes books focusing on the metropolitan New York region and books
of interest to the general public.  It publishes three journals including
Dante Studies and Joyce Studies.

 

Fordham is one of five presses - including New York University Press,
Rutgers University Press, Temple University Press, and the University of
Virginia Press-collaborating on the American Literatures Initiative, which
is devoted to the publishing crisis in literature and literary studies,
where the annual number of university press books has declined steeply in
recent years, placing younger scholars at a disadvantage when writing their
first books.
