The Middle Ground Journal Book Review Department

The Middle Ground Journal Book Review Department update: having placed over fifty books with reviewers in May, we are busy placing the next group of book requests. We have been on pace with placing a request each day with a publisher for the past three weeks. Some of the new publishers are: Johns Hopkins U Press, U of Colorado Press, U of Michigan Press, Rutgers U Press, U of Manitoba Press, and U of Toronto Press. You may also visit the journal’s “Links” page for a list of publishers we have worked with.

Meanwhile, The Book Review Working Group, consisting of ten undergraduate and graduate student interns. This pilot program is integrating student interns into all phases of the book review process, beginning with researching and recommending books to acquire. Student interns study The Middle Ground’s published reviews, investigate comparable journals and publications, and present annotated book lists to explain and justify their recommendations. These lists are then discussed and debated by the student interns. The chief editor makes the final decision. Over the summer, these students are assigned to different publishers to study their history and publishing focus, to study different genres of reviews (NY Review of Books, TLS, London Review of Books, New Yorker, NYT, Washington Post, various online journals and reviews) — as we research, questions, discuss, and debate, we will also formulate new questions for future reviewers to address.

These are the books that arrived at the Middle Ground’s home office last week. These new books will be placed with reviewers during the 2013-2014 school year.

Please address all inquiries to the journal’s chief editor Professor Hong-Ming Liang at HLIANG@CSS.EDU
