Military History Series
March 17, 2009
Once more, we are at the beginning stage of a new military history project, The Naval Civil War Encyclopedia. Attached is an entry list of topics for which we seek authors. Our goal is to assign these subjects out and have them written and submitted as soon as possible.
These essays will be used in a variety of products beyond the printed book, including interactive web sites, workbooks, chronologies, handbooks, etc. They are designed to appeal to a broad audience, including academics, students, and general readers alike.
ABC-CLIO has more than 50 years of experience in historical reference publishing, and has won many awards for its books and publications. It has also recently acquired Greenwood Press and Praeger Publishing and now controls over 18,000 titles. Our Military History Series has earned the Editor’s Choice Award from Booklist for 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 and the Distinguished Achievement Award for 2006 (United States at War database), among many others.
I hope you will consider taking on as many topics as you can. The due dates are flexible, but I prefer to have essays completed within 60 days of their assignment. ALL must be submitted by no later than July 15, 2009.
If you are able to contribute, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with a list of the entries you would be willing to write along with any specific time constraints you might have in completing them. I will get back to you ASAP to make formal assignments.
If you have any ideas for entries you believe are important to this project (such as individual ships) please suggest them. Thank you.
