Library of Social Science—in its mission to publicize and promote significant scholarship—has three constituents:

  • Conference organizers & attendees: our exhibits enhance the intellectual value and success of meetings at which we organize & manage book exhibits.
  • Publishers: we work with the finest presses to help them present new and significant titles to their target audiences.
  • Authors: LSS provides a platform for them—to get their books into the world.

Authors are often present at the meetings at which we promote their books. Sometimes they are keynote and plenary speakers. In special cases, we organize book signings.

Authors understandably are thrilled to discover their book (or books) on one of our tables, yes, as a “centerpiece of our display.”

Please scroll down the page for photos of authors with their books. Not surprisingly, nearly every one has a smile on his or her face: their arduous labor has not been in vain.
