Penn Press Spring 2016 Catalog


As 2015 draws to a close, we look ahead to the springtime, in more ways than one.  We are pleased to share our Spring 2016 catalog. Spring brings the first and only biography of one of the best baseball players ever to not be in the Hall of Fame, as well as a new biography of famed urbanist Jane Jacobs, bools on the Atlantic slave trade and slavery in the U.S., new editions of The Academic Job Search Handbook and The Business of Sports Agents, and new books in Medieval Studies, Intellectual History, Politics and Human Rights, and more.
