The July 4th holiday is over and this is the heart of the scholarship-production season, so perhaps it's time for a serious post.
Ok--look--the news is really starting to trouble me. We've spoken already this spring about University of Michigan Press' shift towards e-publishing and the budget cuts at one of the great history presses--LSU Press. Here, by the way, is the Virginia Quarterly Review blog's fabulous in-depth treatment of LSU's grand history and the problems with LSU's journal Southern Review, as well. It's possible this will be the end for LSU Press.
