Authors come from a variety of fields, including anthropology, criminal justice, history, literature, psychology, religion, and sociology. The books in this series are intended for students, scholars, practitioners, and those who formulate policies which affect children's everyday lives and futures.

The Rutgers University Press

The Rutgers University Press Book Series is the first multidisciplinary book series in Childhood Studies. The book series, edited by Myra Bluebond-Langner, PhD, Professor and True Colours Chair in Palliative Care for Children and Young People at the University College, London, Institute of Child Health and Board of Governors Professor of Anthropology at Rutgers University , provides a major opportunity for the Center and University to shape this new field. The purpose of this series is to increase understanding of children and childhood experiences in the United States and abroad. The series reflects the current view of children and approaches to the study of childhood. Authors come from a variety of fields including: anthropology, criminal justice, history, literature, psychology, religion, and sociology. Books address not only to a scholarly audience, but also to those directly responsible for ministering to children's needs and formulating policies affecting their lives and futures.


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.
