Series description

Series Editors: George Steinmetz, Julia Adams

"Sponsored by the International Institute at the University of Michigan and published by Duke University Press, Politics, History, and Culture is centered around cultural and historical studies of power and politics— field that crosscuts the disciplines of history, sociology,anthropology, political science, and cultural studies. Many volumes in this series focus on the state and interstate relations, and the political and social movements that address them. Our authors address the study of politics and the state with culturalist methods, and conversely treat signifying practices as an essential dimension of politics. The dialectic of politics, culture, and history figures prominently in all books selected for the interdisciplinary series."

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.
