Authors Needed: ABC-Clio book on Conflict and the Fourth Estate: Media and Propaganda in U.S. Military History
ABC-Clio is in the middle of developing a new military history encyclopedia tentatively titled Conflict and the Fourth Estate: Media and Propaganda in U.S. Military History. The work will cover the impact of media and propaganda during all the major wars in U.S. history, from colonial times to the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Attached you will find a list of topics for which we seek authors. Our goal is to assign these subjects out and have them written and submitted by the spring of 2009. Please keep in mind that the attached list is only a PARTIAL list representing those entries that have not yet been assigned or written.
We hope you will consider taking on as many topics as you can. The due dates are flexible, but we generally prefer to have essays completed within 60 days of their assignment. ALL entries must be submitted by no later than April 30, 2009.
Contracts will be prepared once contributors have agreed to entry assignments. Compensation is as follows:
• Contributors will have their names associated with their entries, wherever the entries appear.
• Contributors who complete more than 3,000 words will receive a $300 credit (Clio dollars) to be used to purchase any ABC-CLIO print or electronic product(s), including encyclopedias. For every 750 words thereafter, the credit increases by $50.
• A Clio dollar certificate will be mailed to you when the title is published. Clio dollar credits must be redeemed toward purchases within one year of the receipt of the certificate.
If you would like to write entries that will appear in the first 6 chapters (North American Colonial Wars and the American Revolution, Wars of the Early Republic and the War of 1812, American Indian Wars, Mexican-American War, Civil War, and Spanish-American War), please e-mail Martin Manning at ManningMJ@state.gov with a list of the entries you are interested in writing. If you would like to write entries that will appear in Chapter 7-12 (WWI, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Cold War, Middle Eastern Wars - Afghanistan, Iraq) please e-mail Clarence Wyatt at email@example.com with a list of the entries you are interested in. We will get back to you ASAP to make formal assignments.
