Books for Understanding News

New Home for Books for Understanding!

Books for Understanding has a "new" home at the domain www.booksforunderstanding.org. AAUP has rolled all of the Books for Understanding bibliographies and resources onto a separate web site to provide long-term flexibility for the program. Please update any links you might have to Books for Understanding lists or pages, simply replace the URL pattern "aaupnet.org/news/bfu" with "www.booksforunderstanding.org."

"Books for Understanding Egypt" in Development

The events in Egypt demand a deeper understanding from observers worldwide. AAUP members are well-placed to provide essential context, background, and analysis through the scholarly books and authors that they publish. We are working to compile a comprehensive bibliography of relevant titles, though work on our web site (including the recent Books for Understanding move) will delay publication a bit. In the interim, the American University in Cairo Press offers a very deep list on Egypt's economy, culture, and political history that can be browsed here: http://www.aucpress.com/t-specialoffers.aspx
