Purdue University Press is pleased to announce the list of new books for our Fall/Winter 2020 season. This new season of books will cover subjects including Jewish studies, central european studies, aeronautics and astronautics, Indiana, politics, library sciences, and literature.
This season adds to our collection of Holocaust memoirs with Escaping Extermination: Hungarian Prodigy to American Musician, Feminist, and Activist by Agi Jambor. Written shortly after the close of World War II but unpublished until now, this memoir by acclaimed Jewish Hungarian concert pianist Agi Jambor describes how she and her husband escaped the extermination of Hungary’s Jews during the Holocaust.
The season also includes two new titles that serve as essential resources for those affected by Parkinson’s Disease, The Complete Guide for People with Parkinson’s Disease and Their Loved Ones and Everything You Need to Know About Caregiving for Parkinson’s Disease. Both books are written by Lianna Marie, a trained nurse who served as her mother’s caregiver and advocate for over twenty years through the many stages of Parkinson’s Disease.
A Round Indiana: Round Barns in the Hoosier State, Second Edition by John Hanou will add to our great collection of books on Purdue & Indiana. This book documents the 266 round barns identified in the history of Indiana, containing more than 300 modern and historical photographs alongside nearly 40 line drawings and plans.
