“A monumental achievement that will be valuable to scholars and general readers interested in Judaism, religion, and art history.”—starred review, Library Journal
“Creole is revelatory. This book will be important for the field of art history, and it will set a new standard for research and analysis in nineteenth-century French art, where it will be canonical.”—Nancy Locke, author of Manet and the Family Romance
“This collection synthesizes key issues of scholarly annotation for the first time, not by providing a single definitive set of rules and procedures but by setting out the broad spectrum of considerations that should be in the minds of editors (and publishers). It is by far the most comprehensive treatment of these issues to date and thus fills a long-felt want.”
—Pat Rogers, author of Pope and the Destiny of the Stuarts: History, Politics, and Mythology in the Age of Queen Anne
“An important, interesting, and thorough contribution to our knowledge of stereotyping and electrotyping and the history of their industrial implementation and economic impact in America. Publishing Plates contains extensive references to original sources, comprehensive narrative histories of the Carey company and the American Bible Society, and fascinating anecdotes that flesh out the importance of stereotyping and electrotyping.”
—Peter Shillingsburg, author of Textuality and Knowledge: Essays
Medical Anthropology Quarterly calls Deborah Nadal’s Rabies in the Streets “a truly original book and a fascinating read.”

Each month we’re highlighting a book available through PSU Press Unlocked, an open-access initiative featuring scholarly digital books and journals in the humanities and social sciences. This month’s pick: The Living from the Dead: Disaffirming Biopolitics.
Theban Tomb 188 is the sole archaeological site in the ancient Theban necropolis securely dated to the reign of the “heretic pharaoh” Akhenaten (1353–1336 BCE). The result of several years of clearance and recording by Dr. Susan Redford, director of the Akhenaten Temple Project’s Theban Tomb Survey, this richly illustrated book provides a detailed description of the remaining wall scenes and texts of this historically important ancient monument.
The Torah Unabridged is a detailed examination of legal reasoning in the Hebrew Bible. Focusing on the exegetical operations by which biblical laws related to intermarriage were applied to circumstances and persons that lie outside the sphere of their explicit content, this book reconstructs the ways in which laws regarding intermarriage evolved, were interpreted, and were applied across time and place.
