Simply Outstanding

from Press News, posted 01/29/2013 - 12:41

We have talked about Choice book reviews before, noting their importance especially in North America.

What we didn't say then however is that, in its January issue each year, Choice publishes a list of "Outstanding Academic Titles", selected for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field and their value as important – often the first – treatment of their subject.

This time a NIAS Press title has hit the jackpot – Chris Goscha's Historical Dictionary of the Indochina War has won the recognition it richly deserves, earning the accolade of "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2012.

This is not the first recognition the study has received – see for instance a lengthy review published recently in Revue d'histoire (which we must soon translate and post to the website) – nor will it be the most fulsome; we confidently expect the rave reviews to begin roiling in as the year progresses. Nonetheless, the recognition by Choice is a nice way to start 2013.

Brilliant work, Chris!
