NEW THIS FALL

 


The Academy and the Award and Frankly Feminist are finally available in your local stores, and online platforms. Order your copy today!

The first behind-the-scenes history of the organization of the Academy.

The early history of the formation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the development of its most famous award—the Oscar—told by a consummate insider, the Academy’s former executive director.

With a discerning eye and a wealth of experience, Bruce Davis transforms what could have been dry and academic into an erudite and witty saga. He buries a number of myths and rumors surrounding the Oscars, and reveals how the organization survived its chaotic early years. The Academy and The Awards is a major contribution to Hollywood history—and a great read. — Leonard Maltin   

Short story collections focusing on Jewish writers have—no surprise—typically given women authors short shrift. This new volume represents the best Jewish feminist fiction published in Lilith magazine, and does what no other collection has done before in its geographic scope, its inclusion of 21st-century stories, and its Jewish feminist focus.

This collection showcases a wide range of stories offering variegated cultures and contexts and points of view: Persian Jews; a Biblical matriarch; an Ethiopian mother in modern Israel; suburban American teens; Eastern European academics; a sexual questioner; a Jew by choice; a new immigrant escaping her Lower East Side sweatshop; a Black Jewish marcher for justice; in Vichy France, a toddler’s mother hiding out; and more.


The Art of the Dealer – who made Picasso Picasso?

Belonging and Betrayal is a brilliantly etched portrayal of the family firms that maneuvered, battled, adapted, persevered, and prospered over decades and centuries. In this masterwork, Dellheim shows how to understand the business of culture. — Jonathan Karp, Jewish Review of Books

An intimate conversation with forty women across the world

The Washington Post has published an in-depth review of Ellen Warner’s The Second Half: Forty Women Reveal Life After Fifty. This book is a collection of photographic portraits and interviews, depicting how the second half of life is experienced by women from many different cultures. From a French actress to a British novelist, from an Algerian nomad to a Saudi Arabian doctor, and an American politician, Ellen Warner traveled all over the world interviewing women about their lives.

“Reading Ellen Warner’s The Second Half: Forty Women Reveal Life After Fifty is like having one of those intimate conversations with each of 40 women from around the world as they share their formative experiences and advice for younger generations. Their insights are particularly valuable in a country where intergenerational learning is often lost…”

Publishers Weekly highlights Brandeis University Press

When the University Press of New England shuttered at the end of 2018, the region lost a unique publishing consortium with a diverse backlist that drew its collective strength from the specialization of its member presses. But UPNE’s backlist is not gone. Instead, it has been acquired by Brandeis University Press, which plans to use the titles to support its own expansion into some genres that have been underserved since UPNE’s closure.

“Brandeis University Press, through its publishing program, is an important part of our institutional mission.”

Lisa Lynch
Provost, Brandeis University (2014-2020)
