Texas Tech University Press Publication Named as “Best of the Best”

Facebook

A Texas Tech publication has been listed as “Best of the Best.”

The Texas Tech University Press publication “A Perfect Fit: The Garment Industry and American Jewry (1860-1960)” edited by Gabriel M. Goldstein and Elizabeth E. Greenberg received the honor at the 2013 American Library Association conference.

“A Perfect Fit” discusses the “rag trade” era, which was a time when Jewish immigrants dominated the American fashion world.

“Best of the Best” highlights a variety of titles from universities across the nation, and is one of 13 chosen from almost 400 titles published by members of the Association of American University Presses.

“Having a book named a ‘Best of the Best’ represents the culmination of many years of hard work and determination by our editors and staff,” said Robert Mandel, director of Texas Tech University Press. “This honor also demonstrates that TTU Press can now compete toe-to-toe with the best and most prestigious university publishers in the country.”

The AAUP is composed of more than 130 non-profit scholarly publishers dedicated to scholarship and creativity.
