At the beginning of the month, we will publish our next bulletin on new books in German History and German Studies. If you would like to announce the publication of your book, please submit the following information to Chris Fojtik by the end of the month: the author's name, the title of the book, the press, the month it appeared in print, and a link to the publisher/book's site (optional). We are somewhat flexible as to what constitutes a "new" book, but in general we want to publicize books published in the past twelve months.
