Call for Contributors for ABC-CLIO work The U.S. Justice System: An Encyclopedia
I am currently editing the projected three-volumes of The U.S. Justice System: An Encyclopedia, for ABC-CLIO, the leading academic reference publishing company. This work will be aimed at advanced secondary school or undergraduate audiences. The encyclopedia will cover not only the federal system, but state and local jurisdictions, as well.
When completed, the USJS encyclopedia will consist of introductory materials and overview essays, an a-to-z reference (approximately 350 entries covering significant legal topics, individuals, organizations, and cases), a statistical section, a glossary, primary documents, and a general bibliography.
This publication will emphasize the history and contemporary function of civil and criminal justice systems. Essays and entries will describe how judicial institutions accomplish their work, and how they interact with people, organizations, and other branches of government (including law enforcement and administrative agencies) to impact law, society, culture, politics, and the economy.
I am encouraging scholars or professionals with an interest in the fields of American Legal and Constitutional History, Law and Justice, Government, and Political Science to email me to request a current list of projected topics. Please include a brief description of your interests and qualifications.
All contributors to the USJS Encyclopedia will receive author credits and 2 years of access to the online version of the encyclopedia. Contributors who write 3000 words and above will also receive a minimum credit of $300 toward the purchase of any ABC-CLIO print or e-book publication. You may also use the credits to purchase a copy of the completed work.
