Princeton Unviersity Press hosts a Q&A with math editor Vickie Keam on The Imitation Game and the press's experience on the movie-tie-in edition of Alan Turing: The Enigma.
University Press of Kentucky highlights its forthcoming biography on Dalton Trumbo, a blacklisted Hollywood screen writer of films such as Spartacus and Roman Holiday and a member of the Hollywood Ten who opposed the House Un-American Activities Committee.
Georgetown University Press looks at recent TV shows on spying and how its books give the historical background to the storylines.
University Press of Mississippi discusses its book Walk Before Mickey, which has been adapted into a movie set to open Thanksgiving weekend.
