Meet our Authors: Marcienne Martin – September 2017 14 September 2017

Marcienne Martin holds a PhD in Language Sciences and is currently Associate Researcher at the ORACLE Laboratory, based at the University of Reunion Island. She has lectured on onomastics and ICT at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, as well as in Europe and Canada. She is the author of a number of books in French, the most recent of which include Words and Fiction (2015), Le temps minéral (2015), Étude du paria - Brebis galeuse ou enfant prodige? (2015), and La nomination dans l'art : Étude des oeuvres de Mircea Bochis, peintre et sculpteur (2017).

She received a special mention for a Session’s Best Paper at the 7th International Multi-Conference on Complexity, Informatics and Cybernetics (2016), a conference organised by the International Institute of Informatics and Systemics, for her paper titled The Pseudonym on the Internet: Identity Creation and Space of Freedom, and she has also written articles related to these research areas. Marcienne has participated in several art projects, including MEDIO-MONTE's Socialisation Society (a project of the European Union, created by Romanian artist Mircea Bochis) and FIFE 2014 (French-English Poetry Festival).

Marcienne is a returning author with Cambridge Scholars and has authored two books: A Name To Exist: The Example of the Pseudonym on the Internet (2016) and, more recently, The Pariah in Contemporary Society: A Black Sheep or a Prodigal Child? (2017).


Marcienne explains how she came to publish her first title with Cambridge Scholars and describes the experience:

I chose Cambridge Scholars due to the great interest that this publishing house had in my research, which came to be published in my book ‘A Name To Exist: The Example of the Pseudonym on the Internet’. The research in this book derives from my thesis, the theme of which was articulated around the pseudonym on the internet. I was grateful to the people I communicated with, who responded to any demand concerning the publication itself. My experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars has also allowed me to disseminate my work in a much more important way throughout the world than I had been able to before.

Meet our Authors: Andrea Vicini – September 2017 14 September 2017

Dr Andrea Vicini is currently a manager in an industrial company, and has developed relevant professional experience working in international and domestic companies, internal auditing, compliance, risk management and finance control. He is also a member of professional organisations focused on the study of economic and policy questions, such as the Economist Intelligence Unit.

He holds a Master’s in Business Administration and is a member of the Italian Association of Internal Auditors, where he participates in meetings, seminars, and debates on economic and managerial questions, including the development of innovative new technology and start-ups.

In 2015, he obtained a PhD in Economics from the Swiss Management Centre University, where he developed a research project about technology, innovations and employment. He is currently an editorial board member of the International Journal of Energy, Environment and Economics.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Andrea has authored Technological Innovation and the Effect of the Employment on the EU Countries, in which he challenges the old paradigm of ‘innovation means unemployment’, which has dominated the economic debate for centuries.

Andrea explains why he chose to publish a controversial book concerning technological innovation and employment with Cambridge Scholars:

When I was exploring possible publishers for my book proposal, it was especially important that the publisher could demonstrate that they were of a high calibre. Over the last twenty years, due to the diffusion of the internet, there has been an exponential growth in the flow of information available to everyone. However, there has been a corresponding decrease in the quality of knowledge, in relative terms. In the same vein, it is fundamental to have a publisher like Cambridge Scholars Publishing who have a high standard and reputation, who deeply care about the rigour of research and the quality of the book. This is particularly remarkable for authors who are not part of the dominant way of thinking, the so-called mainstream. As such, the publisher’s reputation was an excellent asset to transmitting thoughts and opinions into the global world. After the book was published, my professional contacts multiplied on a global scale, as did the requests I received to participate in research projects, study groups, and think tanks. What I appreciated from Cambridge Scholars Publishing was their professionalism and the attention they provided the author, their objectivity in evaluating the manuscript, and the high standard that they reserve for the author’s work, which is considered to be a scientific book and not a consumer product. All of the aspects described above are vectors of a target which is a genuine diffusion of knowledge.”

Meet our Authors: Ron D. Petitte – August 2017 14 August 2017

Ron D. Petitte serves as Dean of the Honors Institute at Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee, USA, which includes the Center for Leadership & Justice and the Center for Undergraduate Research. Ron is also a tenured, full professor of Politics and Government, at Bryan College. A retired U.S. Army Colonel and graduate of the Virginia Military Institute (VMI), he served as a technical advisor for 20th Century Fox on the Academy Award-winning film, Patton.

He took his Master’s and doctorate at Central Michigan and Golden Gate Universities, USA, respectively. Ron is a recipient of the George Washington Honor Medal, awarded by Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.

Selected as Teacher of the Year by Bryan College and recognised with dual awards for his teaching abilities by the American Political Science Association and the National Political Science Honor Society, Dr Petitte was recently chosen as Scholar of the Year by Bryan College, for Civilization at Risk: Seeds of Strife. His doctoral dissertation, One Hundred Years of Leadership in Administration, was selected for inclusion in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, as well as the George C. Marshall Research Library.

Ron published Civilization at Risk: Seeds of Strife, his first book with Cambridge Scholars, in 2013, and which was described as “a profound wake-up call to the horrible worldwide reality of human trafficking, particularly as it affects women and girls” by Judge Bruce J. Einhorn, Professor of Law at Pepperdine University, USA. The follow-up, Civilization at Risk: Seeds of War, was published in 2016, and is a “must-read” according to a retired Detective Inspector at New Scotland Yard’s Human Trafficking Team.


Ron explains his reasons for publishing with Cambridge Scholars:

It is an honour to share with fellow authors why I consider Cambridge Scholars Publishing the premier academic publishing house in the world, today. Cambridge Scholars is willing to take risks in giving first time authors an opportunity to publish; moreover, they are willing to extend such risks to subject matter. A case in point, if I may. Other than a myriad of conference papers, to include three sessions of the Oxford Round Table, and a few essays, I had yet to write a book. I had been writing and speaking in the area of countering human trafficking, a cause I feel passionate about, but one which was not in the mainstream of academic inquiry, let alone scholarly research. Nevertheless, I proposed to develop a manuscript on this very subject.

My proposal was met with open-minded interest; and, encouragement was forthcoming from the initial series of conversations. Civilization at Risk: Seeds of Strife was published in 2013, and Civilization at Risk: Seeds of War followed in 2016. But, after much soul searching, I made the decision not to continue to write on this subject and informed Cambridge Scholars, accordingly. I was virtually certain this was the end of my relationship with Cambridge Scholars; but, not only was I invited to continue to write for them, the ideas I shared for two more books were welcomed, even though I allowed that I would not be able to begin such work until next year. Their response could not have been more supportive. When one is published by Cambridge Scholars, it is akin to coming into a family. Cambridge Scholars has a vision for scholarly research that reaches around the world. I am honoured to be part of this global vision.

Meet our Authors: Dimitrios Kassis – August 2017 14 August 2017

Dimitrios Kassis holds a PhD from the Faculty of English Studies of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. His doctoral thesis was entitled Representations of the North in Victorian Travel Literature, published in 2015. He has received a Master’s degree in Education Studies (with Distinction) from Roehampton University in London. In addition, he holds a Master’s degree in Translation Studies from the Department of French Language and Literature of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. He speaks 16 foreign languages and his academic interests are connected with travel literature, translation and language studies. He is currently working as an English teacher in the public sector.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Dimitrios has authored Representations of the North in Victorian Travel Literature – “a valuable contribution to the areas of travel criticism as well as Victorian Studies”, according to Professor Efterpi Mitsi – and Icelandic Utopia in Victorian Travel Literature, before publishing American Travellers in Scandinavia earlier this year.

Dimitrios, described as “a genuine expert in the field” by Professor Nóra Séllei, explains why he has returned to publish on three occasions with us:

With regard to my experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars, I have already published three monographs: my dissertation, which is entitled Representations of the North in Victorian Travel Literature (2015), as well as the monographs Icelandic Utopia in Victorian Travel Literature (2016) and American Travellers in Scandinavia (2017). The publishing process has met my expectations and I should stress how satisfied I have been with the overall outcome. I can, therefore, strongly recommend this publishing company to all junior researchers who aspire to have their work published, given that their work will be treated with the utmost care and respect for high quality standards.”

Meet our Authors: Carol L. Shansky – July 2017 14 July 2017

Dr Carol L. Shansky is Assistant Professor of Fine and Performing Arts at Iona College in New Rochelle, NY, USA, where she teaches a broad range of courses in music and is the Director of the Iona College Instrumental Ensemble and the music program. She earned her Doctor of Musical Arts and Master of Music degrees from Boston University and her Bachelor of Music degree from Ithaca College, USA.

Carol is a contributor to the Journal of Research in Musicology, Journal of Historical Research in Music Education, and Research Issues in Music Education, and has presented papers at numerous national and international conferences. She serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Research in Music Performance, and is Board Member for Musicology and Music in General Studies of the College Music Society Northeast Chapter.

In addition, Carol is an active performer in the New York City area, performing in several orchestras and as chamber musician and solo recitalist. Her music appreciation textbook Musical Tapestries: A Thematic Approach to Music Appreciation is currently in its 2nd edition.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Carol has authored The Hebrew Orphan Asylum Band of New York City, 1874-1941: Community, Culture and Opportunity, which is at the same time the story of a boys’ band and a story of New York City.


Carol describes the experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars:

When I was investigating possible publishers for my book proposal, it was especially important that the publisher I worked with could demonstrate, publicly, that they were of a high standard and would be well-regarded by my peers, especially at my academic institution. Cambridge Scholars’ website was very clear about their founding, their mission, production staff and the types of books they were interested in pursuing. Upon receiving confirmation of their interest in working with me on my book, I felt confident that the outcome would be one I could be proud of. The process of publishing with Cambridge Scholars is clear and reasonable. Their staff were very professional and knowledgeable, and were very quick to answer questions and address concerns. I feel very good about the book as a product and am proud to have received positive reviews about it. It is important, at this stage in my academic career, to have a scholarly work published as broadly as this one and it will be the centrepiece of the scholarship component of my tenure application. I have another book topic in mind and would very much consider proposing the idea to Cambridge Scholars.

Meet our Authors: Nicholas Gayle – July 2017 14 July 2017

Nicholas Gayle is a writer and independent research scholar specialising in poetry, first and foremost in Byron’s, but his deep interests also include Latin and Greek verse, classical Chinese Shi and Ci poetry, Shakespeare, Pope, W B Yeats and Hart Crane. Although originally trained as a pianist and teacher, he crossed over academically and professionally to become the Head of Classics at Exmouth Community College, UK, before becoming seduced by Byron’s poetry. This resulted in a further change, a determination to become an independent scholar devoted to writing about the poet’s work.

Nicholas is the author of four essays published over the last few years in The Byron Journal, and is currently working upon a book-length study of Byron’s last completed long poem, The Island, which will contain a transcription of the holograph, never before published. Following this, a work on the resonance of Shakespeare in Byron’s poetry is planned.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Nicholas has authored Byron and the Best of Poets, which is “a must-read for all Byronists and Popeians” according to Professor Bernard Beatty, Senior Fellow at the University of Liverpool, who adds that “this will and should also be read by scholars and anyone interested in literature”.


Nicholas explains why he chose to publish with Cambridge Scholars, citing the influence of the late Peter Cochran, who was a prolific writer on Byron studies:

I am something of an accidental Byronist, being a scholar who wandered in from another field, discovering the extraordinary range, power and beauty of Byron’s poetry rather later in life than earlier; indeed, were it not for an inordinately large pile of ironing one afternoon—and searching around for something on YouTube to listen to as I dealt with it—I would not be writing this. While dashing away with a smoothing iron I was captivated listening to the exploits of one “Don Juan” and this led to some years of immersive study, followed by the rapid publication of four papers in The Byron Journal. From this emerged my first full-length book, a study of the influence of Alexander Pope upon Byron’s poetry, which pointed me in the direction of the excellent offices of Cambridge Scholars Publishing, well established as the publishers of the late lamented Peter Cochran, an editor par excellence of Byron.

From the first I was struck by the speed and smoothness of the publication process. Acceptance of the book was rapid; courteous and efficient responses greeted any of the inevitable niggles that arose; and the combined support structure supplied by Victoria Carruthers, my Author Liaison at the beginning stages, the kind forbearance of the helpful Amanda Millar over the typesetting of what must have been a tricky book to produce, the friendly, accommodating responses of Sophie Edminson at Design, combined with the watchful and caring post-publication support supplied by the assistant publisher Anthony Wright made the whole experience stress-free and positive. I heartily commend Cambridge Scholars Publishing on their dedication and service and am happy to recommend them to scholars at whatever stage in their careers.

So far, there have been two immensely positive results directly stemming from the book’s publication: a flattering review of it by Pat Rogers—perhaps the most highly regarded and eminent scholar of eighteenth century literary studies today—and an invitation to be one of the 50 contributing authors to the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Lord Byron in the prestigious series of that name. I thus have much to thank Cambridge Scholars Publishing for.

Meet our Authors: Wendy Morrison – June 2017 08 June 2017

Wendy A. Morrison holds a DPhil from the University of Oxford, and is currently a Post-doctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford’s Institute of Archaeology. She has worked in both commercial and research archaeology since 2007, and has excavated all over Britain, as well as the Channel Islands and in India. She lectures at the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education, and is currently the Director of the Great Ouse Ancient Landscape (GOAL) project. Her research interests include zoomorphic art in prehistory, integrated GIS mapping of developer-funded excavation, and the archaeological expressions of ancient worldviews.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Wendy has authored Complex Assemblages, Complex Social Structures: Rural Settlements in the Upper and Middle Thames Valley 100BC to AD100, which examines the rural settlements of the period through the lens of cultural theory in order to tease out the more nuanced and diverse human landscape that the material suggests.

Wendy describes the experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars:

I found working with Cambridge Scholars to be the most pain-free publication process I've ever engaged with. Their staff provided me with step by step guidance in the preparation of my submission, and they were helpful when suggesting alterations during their review phase. I particularly enjoyed the freedom to suggest the cover art, and the way the team sent me mock-ups to approve was stellar. The cradle-to-grave support and the truly professional look of the final product was first rate. And receiving a royalties payment after the first year (I'd forgotten it was coming!) was a real treat. Highly recommended!

Meet our Authors: Alain Kerhervé – June 2017 08 June 2017

Alain Kerhervé is Professor in English Studies at the University of Western Brittany, France. He is the director of the HCTI research laboratory, based at the university, and a member of the Société d'Etudes anglo-américaines des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles.

He wrote a book on Mary Delany (1700-1788), published by L'Harmattan in 2004, edited Mary Delany's court letters (Pickering-Chatto, 2015) and completed several book projects with Cambridge Scholars Publishing.

Under Cambridge Scholars, Alain has authored Polite Letters: The Correspondence of Mary Delany (1700-1788) and Francis North, Lord Guilford (1704-1790), The Ladies Complete Letter-Writer (1763), and William Gilpin and Letter Writing, a two-volume publication on a letter-writing manual devised by William Gilpin, commonly known as one of the theoreticians of the picturesque, and a first insight into Gilpin’s more personal writings.


Alain explains why he has returned to publish with Cambridge Scholars on several occasions:

This is how my experience with Cambridge Scholars Publishing started. After reading a paper at a conference, the paper was selected to be part of a book published by Cambridge Scholars in Les villes d'eaux en Grande-Bretagne et en France aux 18e et 19e siècles (CSP, 2005).  A few years later, I contacted Cambridge Scholars with a first personal editorial project, which was turned into a book: Polite Letters: The Correspondence of Mary Delany (1700-1788) and Francis North (1704-1790) in 2009. The experience proved to be extremely rewarding: not only was the Cambridge Scholars team extremely efficient and quick but everyone was also very professional; their responses at every stage of the process were astonishing. I decided that I was going to return to Cambridge Scholars with further projects.

Since the editorial advisory board were particularly interested in projects concerning eighteenth-century texts, I submitted a proposal concerning the publication of a letter-writing manual designed for women. The Ladies Complete Letter-writer was published in 2010. More recently, two extraordinary texts written by William Gilpin, often known as one of the theoreticians of the picturesque, were accepted with enthusiasm by the advisory board. These two volumes made a set composed of a moving and thought-provoking correspondence between a grandfather and his grandson, William Writes to William: The Correspondence of William Gilpin (1724-1804) and His Grandson William (1789-1811) and a totally unknown letter-writing manual, designed for young men, William Gilpin's Letter-Writer, published in 2014. I was very pleased I had the opportunity of working with Cambridge Scholars and I hope to work with them again in the future.

Meet our Authors: Gerhard Besier – May 2017 11 May 2017

Gerhard Besier is a historian (PhD), theologian (DD and Habilitation) and psychologist (Diploma), and received an honorary doctorate from Lund University, Sweden in 2009. He is currently Director of the German-wide Sigmund Neumann Institute, which is situated in Berlin, Dresden and Flensburg, and teaches at several Universities in Europe and North America. He has also held chairs in Contemporary (Church) History and European Studies at the Universities of Berlin, Heidelberg and Dresden.

His publications include The Holy See and Hitler's Germany, which was published by Palgrave in 2007, European Border Regions in Comparison: Overcoming Nationalistic Aspects or Re-Nationalization? (Routledge, 2014) and Neighbourhood Perceptions of the Ukraine Crisis: From the Soviet Union into Eurasia? (Routledge, 2017), both co-edited with Katarzyna Stokłosa.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Gerhard has written and co-edited six titles, most recently releasing the first two parts of an extensive history of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Europe, which investigates the challenges that Jehovah’s Witnesses had to overcome as the religious association attempted to establish itself across Europe.

It is Gerhard's second multiple-volume publication with Cambridge Scholars, and he explains why he returned to publish the anthology with us:


After releasing several books with various publishers in Britain, Germany and Poland, I approached Cambridge Scholars Publishing about publishing European Dictatorships: A Comparative History of the Twentieth Century (2013, co-edited with Katarzyna Stokłosa) and Neither Good Nor Bad: Why Human Beings Behave How They Do (2014). My experience of publishing these titles with Cambridge Scholars was excellent, and so I turned to them again with my edited collection of correspondence between two well-known historical figures: 'Intimately Associated for Many Years': George K. A. Bell's and Willem A. Visser't Hooft's common life-work in the service of the Church Universal – mirrored in their Correspondence (2015, two volumes). Despite the fact that the manuscript was rather challenging, due to its vast table of contents, footnotes and index, the team at Cambridge Scholars tackled it very well. Consequently, Katarzyna Stokłosa and I came to the conclusion that we should publish our extensive anthology on the history of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Europe with Cambridge Scholars too. The first two volumes, Jehovah's Witnesses in Europe: Past and Present Volume 1 Part 1/1 and 1/2 (2016), have just been released. As with my previous books, they look very good and have been well-received by our readership thanks to the well-done layout and robust binding.”

Click here to purchase Part 1/1, which concerns Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Greece and Spain, or click here to purchase Part 1/2 on Italy, Netherlands and Portugal.

Meet our Authors: Brenda Domínguez-Rosado – May 2017 11 May 2017

Brenda Domínguez-Rosado is currently a tenured Professor of English at the University of Puerto Rico, Bayamón campus. She has a BA in Secondary Education in English (TESS=Teaching English to Spanish Speakers), an MA in American and British Literature, and a PhD in Language and Literature of the Anglophone Caribbean, all from the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras campus. Brenda has been an educator for thirty-two years, has won awards for her teaching, and has presented multiple conferences and workshops both locally (Puerto Rico and the US) and internationally in countries such as Aruba, Barbados, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica, Portugal, Spain, and St. Kitts.

Brenda is also a linguistic consultant for the Emmy-nominated educational travel show Isla y Vuelta (produced for the Puerto Rican government TV channel WIPR), collaborating editor/translator for several academic journals, and is happily married and the proud mother of two sons and two grandsons. Her interests include sociolinguistics, bilingual and higher education, reading, and traveling the world. Her recent publications include “Creoles and Acts of Identity: Convergence and Multiple Voicing in the Atlantic Creoles” (with Faraclas et al., 2014), “Tú, Vos, Usted, or You? The Curious Case of Differences in the Use of Second Person Pronouns in Costa Rican Spanish, Puerto Rican Spanish, and English” (2015), “After the ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’: St Kitts Creole English and the Birth of Pitcairn/Norfolk Creole English” (2016) and The Unlinking of Language and Puerto Rican Identity: New Trends in Sight (Cambridge Scholars, 2015).


Brenda describes the experience of publishing her first book with us:

As a neophyte book author and a late bloomer (I obtained my PhD when I was fifty years old in 2012!), I was a bit intimidated by the whole publishing process but was encouraged to submit my doctoral dissertation to Cambridge Scholars Publishing after I saw the publication of conference proceedings of work near and dear to my heart: the Caribbean and its vast contributions to linguistics, literature, and the arts, among so many other spheres. I felt that Cambridge Scholars were amicable towards authors from our region and appreciated the value of our contributions, so I thought that my submission on language and identity in Puerto Rico might be well received. I was not mistaken, and from the very beginning of the process, I received guidance and support. Camilla Harding (Commissioning Editor) treated me with respect and consideration and once my publication was approved by the editorial panel, everyone else on the Cambridge Scholars team followed suit. I set my own schedule which allowed me to transform and streamline my dissertation into a more appealing book, and my book cover design was accepted without qualms (my daughter-in-law designed a very colourful hand-drawn image).

My book was launched on the Cambridge Scholars website and subsequently on various international online book stores, and has been well-received by the academic world. Because of its subject matter, I have been invited to present my book this summer at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., an opportunity that I would not have had if my dissertation had not been published by Cambridge Scholars. I recently submitted a second manuscript to them (this time on my research on poetry in the Caribbean) and hope to continue a congenial relationship with the wonderful Cambridge Scholars team.
