Choice magazine has named five books published by Indiana University Press to its list of 2017 Outstanding Academic titles.
IU Press's Comprehensive English-Yiddish Dictionary, Encyclopedia of the Yoruba, Feeling Normal, Levinas's Ethical Politics, and Turtles as Hopeful Monsters each made the list of more than 500 titles recognized by Choice in 2017.
According to Choice editor and publisher Mark Cummings, each of these titles was selected "for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field, and their value as an important - often the first - treatment of their subject."
Scholarly titles represent only about 2% of the more than 25,000 title submitted for consideration by Choice each year, a fact that Cummings says makes each of the books selected as outstanding "truly the best of the best."
Please join us in congratulating the authors and editors behind each of these truly outstanding books!
