The Book Corner

Posted 1 October 2007 in StressPoints by ISTSS

“The Book Corner” will feature 1) listings of new titles from ISTSS members; and 2) ISTSS member reviews of relevant new titles. To be considered a “new title,” books must have been published in the last 12 months.

Listings of new titles
ISTSS members who have written or edited a book in the last 12 months are invited to send titles and publication information to Matthew Lesh (mlesh@istss.org) for inclusion in "The Book Corner." After appearing in a StressPoints issue, the title will then be maintained on a corresponding “Member Books” Web page for six months. 

Member reviews of relevant new titles
Members are invited to submit reviews of relevant titles (published in the last year) for consideration for publication in StressPoints. Reviews should be approximately 500-700 words; please include all relevant publication information.
