Have Book Series Become Too Much of a Good Thing?
Ruark, Jennifer K.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n34 pA21-23 Apr 28 2000
Examines the recent academic publishing trend of producing series of books on "hot" topics. Cites critics who claim that the proliferation of such series has politicized series, that some series continue despite outliving their usefulness, and that a good series requires a great deal of labor by scholarly editors.
