Scholarly Books

Need a "scholarly" book? What to look for:

  • Written by professors, researchers, or experts
  • May be collections of chapters by different authors
  • Published by university or scholarly presses like Oxford, or Norton
  • Written for academic--not popular--audiences
  • Citations of all primary sources or research
