Now Available! Fall/Winter 2012 Book Catalog

For those of you who have been patiently waiting for Syracuse University Press’ new book list, the time has come!  Our Fall/Winter 2012 book catalog is now available on our website.  This season, we are pleased to announce a variety of different books, ranging from topics such as Television and Pop Culture to Peace and Conflict Resolution.  There is sure to be a read of interest out there for everyone!

If you’re looking for an award-winning title, make sure to check out “Tree of Pearls, Queen of Egypt,” translated from Arabic by Samah Selim.  This classic novel, originally published in 1914, unravels the adventurous story of a famous Arab queen.  As the winner of the King Fahd Center for Middle East and Islamic Studies Translation of Arabic Literature Award, this book is without a doubt an irresistible read.

If you are an Upstate New York native or, like us, reside in Syracuse, you must read “Lake Effect: Tales of Large Lakes, Artic Winds, and Recurrent Snows.”  Mark Monmonier, a Syracuse University professor, offers a detailed examination of Lake Effect Snow and the social impacts of extreme weather.  Scientific American reviews it as “an artful and funny book, which like any good map, packs plenty in little space.”
