Political Theology Today does not do book reviews, but we are pleased to publish book previews.
A book preview should be 1000-1500 words, written by the author, and accomplish the following:
- summarize the topic along with an outline of the contents of the book
- contextualize the subject matter in terms of the larger issues of the day and the other published literature, if any, out there
- give a little history of how you came to write the book, how it relates to your own general scholarship (including previous books of yours, if any) and explain what you consider to be its unique take-away for the reader.
We only do previews within five months after the book first appears, and preferably even right before it goes on the market. We do not do previews for second editions, reprints, textbooks, etc.
Interested authors, editors, and publishers should contact the blog’s Managing Editor, Carl Raschke, at email@example.com. We encourage publishers or authors to contact us at least a month in advance of when the book is available for purchase so that we can schedule previews.
Books for review in the print journal Political Theology may be sent to: Political Theology, St. Mary’s Hall, Villanova University, 800 Lancaster Avenue, Villanova, PA 19085, USA.
