Cultural Critique

Call for reviews:
 
Cultural Critique¹s commitment to cultural and intellectual debate and
discussion is bolstered by the regular inclusion of book reviews of
both new and not-so-new books. Generally, books reviewed will have
appeared within the past three years, although reviews of older books

devote space to authors that may not otherwise be reviewed in an
academic context. We especially encourage reviews of two or three
related academic book publications. For Cultural Critique¹s special issues,
