ABC-CLIO is seeking a scholar to write or edit a systematic reference work on the sea in world history. The book would be approximately 325,000 words and would be written for high school students and undergraduates. It would include sections on broad historical periods, followed by entries on the role of the sea in particular civilizations during those periods. If interested, please email your c.v. to George Butler at ABC-CLIO. We are seeking an assistant professor or person of higher acdemic rank to prepare the book. That person should have a record of publications related to maritime history and ideally will have published a scholarly monograph with a university press. PLEASE NOTE: We are not seeking prospective contributors to the project, only someone to write the entire book or to solicit and coordinate contributors.
