Journal of Haitian Studies Blowout Sale!


Dear HSA members and friends,

As the Journal of Haitian Studies (JOHS) approaches its twenty-fifth anniversary, we are pleased to announce a major sale from now until December 16: most issues are $5 (normally $15), with a full set** available for $140 (normally $300). These journals cover Haiti from a multidisciplinary perspective, with recent topics ranging from archaeology and language history to health education and energy policy. As a comprehensive record of the field’s innovations, the journals are a must for anyone who is serious about Haitian Studies.

At this deep discount, it is easy to stock your shelves with multiple volumes or, better yet, a complete set. Emerging scholars may familiarize themselves with the history of the discipline, and more established scholars may fill the gaps in their own collections. The journals also make great holiday gifts for the people in your life who are passionate about Haiti!

The sale ends on December 16, so act now! Sale prices include shipping to US addresses only (NOTE: if you do not have a US mailing address, contact Rose Elfman at relfman@cbs.ucsb.edu for assistance before placing an order).

To view and purchase the issues for sale, use this special order form: http://www.cbsr.ucsb.edu/publications/orders. Click on the Volume/Number link to view an issue’s contents. If you wish to pay by check, contact Rose Elfman at relfman@cbs.ucsb.edu for assistance.

In addition to filling your library, your purchases will help us clear storage space for future issues! Thank you for your support as we look forward to the next twenty-five years of publication.

Best wishes for this holiday season,
The staff of the Journal of Haitian Studies

** A full set starts with volume 3/4 (1997–1998) and ends with volume 24.1 (Spring 2018), excluding two issues that are out of stock: vol. 17.2 (Fall 2011) and vol. 21.2 (Fall 2015). These issues can be reprinted at an additional cost; contact Rose Elfman at relfman@cbs.ucsb.edu for details. Sets available while supplies last.

P.S. If you’re undecided about the benefits of hard-copy books in 2018, consider these points:

• Physical books are tradable. You can gift them to friends. You can donate them to charity. Ebooks are fixed in your device and can’t be recirculated into the community, the economy, or the rest of the world.
• Books have a feel to them, with texture, thickness, and weight. Compared to the substantial tactile experience of books, a thin little E-Reader feels like a toy.
• Books work just fine without batteries. They don’t need chargers, plugs, or outlets!
