With the disappearance of stand-alone book review sections in many newspapers and a drastic drop in the number of reviews in magazines, scholars have few timely ways to keep up with the latest books in the humanities and social sciences. H-Net's Book Channel is a state-of-the-art solution: A book discovery service that fills a crucial void.
--Steven Mintz, University of Texas at Austin
Book Channel readers following developments in editing will be interested in a new interview from the CBC with editor Gregory Younging, whose Elements of Indigenous Style came out last month. In addition to addressing the challenges facing Indigenous authors, Younging discusses issues of editorial style and preserving the author's voice.
