‘Sit At My Right Hand’ in Paperback

One of the drawbacks of publishing in an academic series is the very high price, which makes the book initially accessible to academics and libraries who can afford to pay “top dollar” to stay current in the field.

That’s why I’m quite pleased that in April 2018 Bloomsbury will be releasing a paperback edition of my book, Sit At My Right Hand: The Chronicler’s Portrait of the Tribe of Benjamin in the Social Context of Yehud (LHBOTS 628; New York/London, 2016). The list price is $39.95 (£28.99), which is half the current online price for the hardback edition.

As one never publishes academic books “for the money,” I’m glad to see an affordable edition that opens my work up to a wider audience, particularly the growing segment of our field that consists of graduate students and contingent faculty (adjunct, contract, part-time) who don’t have their own library budget through an institution.
