Diversion Press invites submissions for inclusion in our upcoming Encyclopedia of Global Terrorism and the War on Terror. We seek contributions from academics from all backgrounds for this interdisciplinary work. Authors are invited to submit up to 6 entries. Each entry should be between 500 and 1000 words. Certain entries (those on entire nations) will run from 1000 to 3000 words. The format is explained in more detail in our guidelines.
The focus of the Encyclopedia is to provide detailed entries describing both domestic and international terrorist events throughout the 20th and (thus far) the 21st centuries. The culmination point of the work is to discuss the War on Terror, in all of its aspects, and the nations that are involved in this effort. The work is an interdisciplinary work as
well, with entries concerning history, political science, biology, chemistry, and agriculture, and contributors range from professors, officers in the Armed Forces of the U.S. and elsewhere, and political, officials in the U.S. State and Defense Department, and foreign officials. Ph.D. students, advanced graduate students, or civilian or
military experts can and have also contributed.
Once entries are assigned to authors, they should be submitted to us in 6 weeks. We can work with extended dates if needed. For an updated word list and guidelines please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with "word list" in the subject line. The anticipated publication date is Winter 2009/2010. Please pass this information along to any colleagues or graduate students who may be interested.
