H-SAE policy on new book announcements (adopted Aug. 2006)
Based upon responses to a survey of the H-SAE readership,
the list editors will approve submissions of new book
announcements to the list from H-SAE subscribers and
from the authors of books relevant to the anthropology
of Europe, but not directly from publishers or their
agents. Acceptable elements of these announcements
can include title, author, ISBN, price, and an abstract
or link to an abstract. Links to reviews are also acceptable.
However, endorsements and ordering contact information
are not welcome. The exception to the restriction on
providing ordering information for publications would
be in the case where they are not easily obtainable from
regular booksellers, such as university bookstores,
online book sources, or local booksellers.
For example, a book on Eastern European migration published
by the Greek Social Science Center can effectively only be
purchased from that center. So precise ordering information
including mailing address and forms of payment accepted would
be appropriate in such a case.
Please direct any questions or suggestions about this policy
to list editors
