Juan de la Cuesta Hispanic Monographs
A Letter From the Publisher

 

Although Tom Lathrop always incorporated some kind of “special deal” in his catalogues to stimulate sales, this is the first year we’re offering a full-fledged “bargain bin” with so many of our backlist titles (it's on page 16 of the 2017 catalogue). I’m sure Tom would be pleased that so many of the books he brought to print since 1978 are still available from Juan de la Cuesta. It’s a great time to pick up some gems for your school or home library.

 

A.G. Lo Ré’s Essays on the Periphery of the Quijote was the first Cuesta book Tom introduced to me when I came to work for him in 1998. Lo Ré describes how Cervantes posthumously managed to affect the father of our country one fateful day in 1787. Tom said he enjoyed thinking about how our own George Washington, after signing the United States Constitution, popped into a Philadelphia bookshop to buy his first copy of the Quixote and presumably walked home with it tucked in his arms. During our own trying times, I hope world leaders remember to retain a sense of humor and perspective so delightfully described in Don Quixote. In any case, we still have plenty of copies of Essays on the Periphery of the Quijote left, so if you buy one of the new books in this catalogue at list price, snatch this one up for just five bucks!


It’s been another ambitious year of publications for us here at Juan de la Cuesta Hispanic Monographs, and as always I am very thankful to our editorial board, our authors and editors, and particularly Dr. Michael McGrath for his expertise and faithful wrangling of new manuscripts. For the first time ever, we’ve had to put a hold on incoming manuscripts so we can give the present books-in-production the time they deserve. We will be accepting new manuscripts again in July, 2017. As always, we strive to publish manuscripts of the highest quality based on the evaluations of the members of the editorial board and outside readers, all of whom are recognized for the high quality of their own scholarship and significant contributions to the profession. Click here for information on how to submit a proposal.


As small publishers are swallowed up by the big ones, and freedom of thought is increasingly under seige at politically correct university presses and the world at large, outlets like Juan de la Cuesta Hispanic Monographs are even more important now than when Tom Lathrop hatched his idea nearly forty years ago. We are fortunate to have the freedom to publish books dealing with an incredible diversity of thought and to bring many unique and valuable voices to light that might not otherwise been available to the academic world. Thank you for your continued support of independent publishers like Juan de la Cuesta Hispanic Monographs.
