Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the Office of the Provost, I am pleased to welcome you again to this seventh annual display of our collective scholarly productivity. These 35 books, produced since April of last year, once again testify to the continuing intellectual vibrancy of the St. John's University faculty in every School and College.

It is an axiom of the academy that the scholarly life of the faculty is its intellectual heart, and to thrive and grow that life must be shared, tested, discussed and celebrated. Our students deserve nothing less than classes which grow from our professional engagement with the world and with the best scholarship of our contemporaries; these books are the tools of that engagement.

To each of our current contributors, congratulations, and to all our colleagues, we look forward to honoring you next year or some year soon.
