Welcome to July’s newsletter!
It’s fantastic to be back in the office after the lockdown period and return to a bit of normality. We’ve had another extremely busy quarter with 10 titles published and a whopping 29 titles in production.
During COVID-19 restrictions we enjoyed a significant increase in downloads and web traffic. This meant that we have surpassed 2 MILLION downloads so far this year – another new record! Again we would like to thank our wonderful authors and editorial board members. We couldn’t do this without you.
We have some exciting new titles coming soon: Fluid Matter(s) is the first fully online interactive book that we have published using Shorthand as a platform. This book is a valuable and interesting contribution of the history of fluids relating to the human body. Through a series of case studies from Europe, India, China, Mongolia and Japan, it suggests ways to make sense of this strange and dimly rememebered past, and urges the reader to reflect anew on the significance of fluids and flows in the history of medicice.
We are also excited to release A Populist Exception? The 2017 New Zealand General Election in August! This book draws on the 2017 New Zealand Election Study to uncover New Zealanders’ political attitudes and preferences post-election.
