Series description

American Encounters/Global Interactions, published by Duke University Press.
Edited by Gilbert M. Joseph and Emily S. Rosenberg

"The series "aims to stimulate critical perspectives and fresh interpretative frameworks for scholarship on the history of the imposing global presence of the United States." Books in this series seek also to strengthen dialogue across disciplines--international relations and area studies, history and anthropology--and to promote critical inquiry into issues of subjectivity and narrative. By building on the scholarship already established, combining traditional historical approaches with more contemporary methods from a wide array of disciplines, and changing the angles and modes of observation, these works make significant contributions to our understanding of how Latin American nations, cultures, and political economies have changed over time."


How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
