    Here is the most recent list of books received, February 2018
    Interested scholars may contact the Editor at

    Scholars will be selected on the basis of their expertise and research interests.
    Scholars who have never reviewed for AdI, or are new in the profession, are encouraged to introduce themselves briefly when they request books to review.

    All reviews are read by the Editor and Associate Editor. All reviewers will receive proofs with feedback.

    Information on the journal's editorial norms can be found on the journal's website:

    PUBLICATION DEADLINE: Colleagues who have accepted to review books should submit their reviews as soon as possible and before the next deadline (June 30, 2018) for their review to appear in the 2018 issue.

    In all your correspondence with the Editor, please provide your e-mail address, complete name, academic affiliation, and the complete address where you wish to receive the book to be reviewed.

    If you contact the Editor and receive no answer, after three weeks please contact the Editor again at:

    As of the 2009 issue, Annali lists in the annual volume all the reviews, including titles of books and names of reviewers, and will paginate all the reviews as they would appear in print, with consecutive page numbers. The reviews, however, will appear only online, where the entire section of reviews (Bookshelf) is already available as of 1998.
