About the series

The Justice, Power, and Politics series publishes and pursues new works of history that explore questions of social justice, political power, and struggles for justice in the twentieth century—thereby bringing these books into conversation with each other.

In doing so, JPP helps readers to better understand the evolution of the United States in the last century, as well as integrate and broaden the way we think about these issues.

Submission guidelines

We welcome your proposal and will respond to your inquiry as quickly as possible after consulting with the series editors. A book proposal should include the following items:

  • cover letter introducing yourself and stating your interest in the series
  • detailed description of the work (and projected length), its contribution to the field, and its appropriateness for the Justice, Power, and Politics series; its relation to similar and competing works, and the intended audience
  • table of contents or proposed chapter outline with a paragraph on the contents of each chapter
  • c.v. or resume

We prefer that authors do not submit complete manuscripts unless invited to do so.

Our policy is to recycle proposal materials after consideration. If you would like these materials returned, be sure to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
