January 10, 2023-- The new edition of US National Security received a rave review in CHOICE magazine’s January issue! Here’s a snippet from the review: “National security has been an issue since the presidency of George Washington, but unfortunately, many Americans have a limited understanding of the topic’s complexity. Luckily, readers may explore the subject in the sixth edition of US National Security: Policymakers, Processes, and Politics. The authors reflect on concerns that have long worried national security analysts and politicians, such as the dangers nuclear war and hypersonic weapons systems pose. Drones and other remotely controlled weapons have further changed the security equation. With the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022 and China’s cyberwar capabilities creating great global threats, the new edition of US National Security is an essential addition to any academic library.”

October 24, 2022-- Wonderful news: Ken Chitwood's The Muslims of Latin America and the Caribbean">The Muslims of Latin America and the Caribbean won the Religion News Association's Award for Best Nonfiction Religion Book! In celebration, it's 50% off for a limited time. Here are some kind words that were shared at the awards ceremony: “Each chapter of this book reads like a long-form magazine article by a top-tier journalist and not at all like the work of an academic scholar. Oh wait! It's BOTH! Author Ken Chitwood does what all religion reporters aspire to do—find that undertold story hiding in plain sight and pull out all its nuances.”
