NOTE: If you are interested in reviewing one of these books please email both the editors of the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy: Patrick K. Dooley and Jessica Wahman

Please note the anti-nepotism stance of the Society's Executive Committee:
Responding to concerns about perceived nepotism of reviewers (colleague/colleague or thesis director/ student or former mentor/student) the Executive Committee decided that, while an absolute prohibition against say, a former student reviewing the book of his/her dissertation advisor or mentor, might not be wise, in general such nepotism should be avoided. However since we SAAP NEWSLETTER editors are not aware of all these possible relationships and since we don't know where many of you potential reviewers gained your Ph Ds or are now teaching, will you please refrain from requesting a book for review when it appears that the sorts of nepotism noted above might be an issue'
Finally, in light of the above mentioned concern about nepotism potential reviewers when you request a book for review also please indicate: 1) your dissertation advisor, 2) where you earned your PHD and 3) where you are now teaching'
On or about 16 April NEWSLETTER editors will notify the reviewer they have agreed upon for each book. Reviewers are responsible for submitting (by email attachment) a 800 to 1200 word review by 1 November 2007.
Approximately 20 more books have been requested from publishers; accordingly in about a month another list of books available for review will be posted on the SAAP WEB page.
Thank you for you interest and assistance,
Patrick Dooley and Jennifer Wahman.
