Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the Office of the Provost, I am pleased to welcome you again to this eighth annual display of our collective scholarly productivity. Once again St. John’s faculty have produced more than 30 books since April of last year, testifying to the continuing intellectual vibrancy of the faculty in every school and college.

This year we have a significant number of first editions and several monographs published by university presses.

It is an axiom of the academy that the scholarly life of the faculty is its intellectual heart, and to thrive that life must be shared, tested, discussed and celebrated. Our students deserve nothing less than classes which grow from our personal, disciplinary engagements with the world and with the best work 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.
