Outstanding Academic Titles

Two University Press of Mississippi titles have been named to the latest Outstanding Academic Title list from Choice. The 2008 selections from UPM are:

  • The Natchez Indians: A History to 1735 by James F. Barnett Jr. This book portrays the way that the Natchez coped with a rapidly changing world, became entangled with the political ambitions of two European superpowers, France and England, and eventually disappeared as a people.

These outstanding works have been selected for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field, and their value as important--often the first--treatment of their subject. Choice Outstanding Academic Titles are truly the "best of the best."

UPM had 4 titles on the 2007 OAT list.
