Alcohol and Temperance in Modern History: An International Encyclopedia
CALL FOR AUTHORS
The American publisher ABC-Clio plans to publish Alcohol and Temperance in Modern History: An International Encyclopedia in two volumes of 250,000 words each in the Fall of 2003. In addition to laying out factual information on all aspects of drinking and temperance, the Encylopedia aims to demonstrate the wide variety of forms that drinking, temperance and regulation of drinking have taken around the world. Considerable space, however, will be devoted to developments in the English-speaking world, where scholarship on alcohol and temperance history is most abundant at this time.
The Encyclopedia will be edited by general co-editors Jack Blocker, David Fahey and Ian Tyrrell, assisted by an advisory board.
Authors are sought for topics not yet assigned. Those whose articles are accepted for publication in the Encyclopedia will be compensated with a copy of the Encyclopedia or a modest stipend per page. Authors will be given at least four months to write and submit their articles.
A full description of the project and a list of headwords not yet assigned may be found at the Encyclopedia website:
