Ancient News: From Eisenbrauns, an Imprint of PSU Press

in this issue

year in review: 2021 by the numbers

As we begin 2022, we here at PSU Press are pleased to be able to say that the Eisenbrauns imprint continues to play a vital and growing role in advancing the scholarly discourse on the ancient Near East, Semitic linguistics and languages, biblical studies, and related disciplines. We’ve listed some of the highlights from last year below, and we’re eager to see what this year brings.

—Patrick Alexander, director, PSU Press
