The LSE Review of Books is a blog founded in April 2012 which aims to review the latest books in social sciences. In its first year it has gained over 4000 readers a week and 10,000 Twitter followers and reviewed many of our books.
I attended the first LSE Review of Books Awards ceremony in London yesterday on behalf of Policy Press. We were pleased to sponsor one of the prizes, which was awarded for the most read review in Sociology and Anthropology. The winner was Margherita Margiotti of the University of Bristol, with a review of The Subject of Anthropology by Henrietta L. Moore.
The Verso Prize for Most-Read Review in Law and Human Rights was won by Tara O’Leary for her review of Criminalisation and advanced marginality by Peter Squires and John Lea, published by us!
You can see a complete list of the winners on the LSE Review of Books Awards website.
The event was an opportunity for publishers to meet the reviewers and share information. We look forward to working with LSE Review of Books in the coming years to see many more of our books reviewed.
