Purdue University Press is pleased to announce the list of new books for our 2021 Spring/Summer season. This new season of books will cover subjects including Jewish studies, central european studies, the human-animal bond, literature, and modern weather sciences.
In Reginald Sutcliffe and the Invention of Modern Weather System Science author Jonathan E. Martin shines a light on the understudied and underappreciated life of Reginald Sutcliffe, perhaps the foremost British meteorologist of the twentieth century and a pioneer of modern weather systems science.
This season also adds to our New Directions in the Human-Animal Bond series with Pioneer Science and the Great Plagues: How Microbes, War, and Public Health Shaped Animal Health by Norman F. Cheville and The Canine-Campus Connection: Roles for Dogs in the Lives of College Students edited by Mary Renck Jalongo. Pioneer Science and the Great Plagues covers the plagues from 1860 to 1960, highlighting the essential role that veterinary science played the strategies we learned to defeat them. The Canine-Campus Connection provides authoritative, evidence-based guidance on bringing college students and canines together in reciprocally beneficial ways.
Refuge Must Be Given: Eleanor Roosevelt, the Jewish Plight, and the Founding of Israel by John F. Sears details the evolution of Eleanor Roosevelt from someone who harbored negative impressions of Jews to become a leading Gentile champion of Israel in the United States, adding to our large collection of books on Jewish studies.
