Meet our Authors: Claudio Costa - July 2019 12 July 2019

Claudio Costa received his PhD in Philosophy from the University of Konstanz, Germany. He is currently Full Professor at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, keeping in touch with the international philosophical community by means of numerous sabbaticals at the University of California, Berkeley, Oxford, München, Göteborg, and the École Normale Supérieure, among others.

One of Claudio's main publication in English is The Philosophical Inquiry (2002), which develops a general theory on the nature of philosophy. His most important publications in international journals of philosophy over the last fifteen years have been extensively revised for publication in his book, Lines of Thought: Rethinking Philosophical Assumptions (2014)

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Claudio has authored Lines of Thought: Rethinking Philosophical Assumptions and Philisophical Semantics: Reintergrating Theoretical Philosophy.


Claudio explains his reasons for choosing to publish with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, emphasising that the fair and responsible way in which authors are treated has led him to return and publish a second title with us:

It is often difficult for an outsider from a developing country to publish in the hierarchical traditional system of academic publishers in the  USA and UK, particularly in a highly abstract field like analytic philosophy. A few great publishers have acquired a near monopoly in a market where standards of value have long since been decided from above, and even the work of evaluating outsiders’ projects is rejected as too insignificant to concern major insiders. However, knowledge is becoming increasingly globalized, which means that good ideas can emerge from a wide range of unexpected sources. In my case, I believe I have found something new and relevant, which is my effort to find a more systematic way to work with theoretical philosophy that is indifferent to the impositions of the mainstream. CSP was receptive to my project from the start. And it gave me the necessary freedom to develop my views with the generous assistance of their staff. The printing was of the best quality, and I was encouraged to choose my cover art. I was able to decide what I wanted, and the final design and layout improved the covers aesthetically in a most professional manner. Because of its competence and an unbiased approach to meeting the demands of the publishing market, CSP is making a name for itself as an important platform for the spread of new ideas in the English-speaking world."

Monty describes his experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:

My experience in publishing with Cambridge Scholars has been a very positive one. From the start of the relationship which began with the signing of the contract to the end which included editing, proofreading, pagination, cover art, and marketing I worked with several different professionals at Cambridge Scholars. Each and every one of these individuals was well-trained, highly professional, and well experienced in their field. I am glad that four years of my work in preparing this manuscript has finally come to fruition in the form of a published book. Having published books with other publishers around the world as well, I would have absolutely no reservation in recommending Cambridge Scholars to both aspiring as well as established authors."

Meet our Authors: Farhad Malekian - June 2019 14 June 2019

Farhad Malekian is a Persian-Swedish leading authority in substantive criminal law, international criminal law, comparative international criminal law and criminal justice. His works have been used as course literature across the world. He was recognised by L’Association Internationale de Droit Penal as one of the “leaders in the field of international criminal law” in the twentieth century.

Farhad has been a distinguished leading authority on comparative international criminal law and procedure since 1992. He is the author of twenty books and a plethora of articles, which have been recommended sources and reading literature in law faculties from Europe to Vietnam.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Farhad has authored, co-authored or co-edited nine books. His most recent three books are;  Allegation by Political LaunderingClassical Morality in International Peremptory Criminal Law, and Corpus Juris of Islamic International Criminal Justice.


Farhad explains his reasons for choosing to publish with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, emphasising the freedom that authors have throughout the whole publishing process:

“I should like to start by conveying my sense of great honour which Cambridge Scholars Publishing has given me by inviting me to write my thoughts about the process of publishing a book with them. Cambridge Scholars Publishing have respected my writing and, without interference, have permitted me to freely lay bare my creative understanding of the relevant legal discipline.

There are publishers which may have different policies regarding publication, but with CSP one feels free of different restrictive ties and I have been able to develop my creative ideas with complete support from the publishing side. This not only includes the time schedule, but also continued communication with the author and necessary cooperation about the process of adoption of the work throughout the different levels of progress.  In addition, the publisher fully understands that it is solely the writer who is responsible for the metaphysics of the work and certainly not the publisher.  Otherwise, any judgments would be unjust. This means that CSP entirely respects the principles of freedom of expression.

Having thought much about the publisher’s function in our living academic world, I am confident in the ability of CSP to bring the voice and the message of the author to each relevant individual in the world. I also invite all good lawyers who care for the process of publishing - which is as equal as the process of writing a manuscript - to submit to CSP and consequently promote their work.”

Meet our Authors: Maria Vodenska - May 2019 14 May 2019

Prof. Maria Vodenska received her Master’s degree in Geography of Tourism from Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, Faculty of Geology and Geography, in 1974, and her PhD from Moscow Academy of Sciences in 1978. She has worked at the “Geography of Tourism Department” of Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” from 1979-2017 and was heading the department in the period 1994-1999. In 1994-2003 she was consecutively Deputy Dean and Dean of the Faculty of Geology and Geography. From 2011 to 2015 Prof. Vodenska was the Deputy Chairperson of the Sofia University’s General Assembly. Now she is a Professor at the International Business School-Botevgrad in Bulgaria. She has over 100 research papers and books, mainly in Bulgarian and English.

In 2018 she was a part of the Editorial team and also a contributor to a book published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing under the title Traditions and Innovations in Contemporary Tourism. This book presents significant theoretical and empirical approaches towards various hospitality and tourism aspects concerning both traditions and innovations in tourism development.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Maria has most recently edited Hospitality and Tourism in Transition in Central and Eastern Europe: A Comparative Analysis.


Maria explains her reasons for choosing to publish with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, emphasising the efficient nature of our work, and the special attention given to her as an author and editor:

Cambridge Scholars contacted our Tourism Department at Sofia University in 2017 and offered to publish selected papers of our international 50 anniversary conference. The reason we decided to accept the offer was that it promoted itself as an ‘upmarket’ niche publisher and that was what we were looking for for our contributors. The process of handling the legal side (contracts, agreements, etc.) was extremely quick and efficient and the production process was conducted in an efficient and pleasantly friendly manner. The editorial guidance given to us has always combined with support and encouragement. In the earliest stages the editorial team put me on the right track, and provided assistance that was valuable. I especially appreciated the prompt replies whenever we had any queries concerning the manuscript, e.g. its layout, scope, or any other particular section like the cover design.

As a result of our joint and good productive work I was invited by CSP to become a member of the Advisory Board of Travel and Tourism Management and the Advisory Board of Sociology of Leisure and Tourism and Travel books.

Later in 2018 I offered another international book for publication by CSP. The proposal was gladly accepted and we enjoyed the same satisfactory process of going through all publication stages. Texts were checked very thoroughly, and often sent back to authors with explicit comments to make sure they meet the highest standards of publication. Questions were answered promptly and special concerns of mine were adequately handled.

I am really glad I chose to publish with Cambridge Scholars and I plan to continue this fruitful collaboration. I am pleased and would recommend them to other scholars without hesitation!

Meet our Authors: Galina Weinstein - May 2019 14 May 2019

Dr Galina Weinstein specializes in the work of Albert Einstein and in the history and philosophy of the Special and General Theories of Relativity. She is currently a Research Associate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Haifa, Israel. She has received several prestigious awards in recent years, including a GIF (German Israeli Foundation for Research) grant to conduct extended research in the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin and in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Haifa, and several post-doctoral fellowships.

Galina describes her experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:

"It is my pleasure to write this recommendation on behalf of Cambridge Scholars. I believe any scholar will enjoy publishing their book with Cambridge Scholars. They showed kindness from the very first contact with me shortly after I was in search of a publisher for my first book. For my second manuscript, it was clear to me that Cambridge Scholars would be the right publisher, capable of creating a perfect academic book (book manuscripts were already reviewed before signing the contract). Cambridge Scholars' workers have impressed me with their flexibility and understanding of the marketing process. Future writers should feel confident that their manuscripts will be published on time and with consistent quality. In the typesetting process, the workers were thorough but prompt, clean and sharp in their execution. They have paid close attention to details and were ready to reformulate until the desired effect was achieved."

Meet our Authors: Laura Finley and Matthew Johnson - April 2019 15 April 2019

Laura Finley, PhD, is Associate Professor of Sociology and Criminology at Barry University, USA. She is author, co-author, and editor of twenty books, as well as numerous book chapters and journal articles. She is also a syndicated columnist with PeaceVoice and a contributing author with New Clear Vision. In addition, Dr Finley is actively involved with a number of peace, justice and human rights initiatives.

Matthew Johnson holds an MA in Peace and Conflict Studies from Hacettepe University (Turkey) and a BA in Journalism from the University of Maryland, where he began his activism organizing against war, poverty, racism, mass incarceration, and gender-based violence. He has published several articles on these topics. He has also served as an educator in a variety of contexts.

Laura and Matthew describe their experience of publishing their hugely socially important book Trumpism: The Politics of Gender in a Post-Propitious America with Cambridge Scholars Publishing.


"I am so very grateful that Cambridge Scholars Publishing agreed several years ago to publish the series Peace Studies: Edges and Innovations, which I am fortunate to co-edit with Dr. Michael Minch, on behalf f the Peace and Justice Studies Association. This important series sheds light on current domestic and global issues, on ways that peace, conflict studies, and other scholars can contribute to social change, the role of students and activists in nonviolent social change movements, and more. I am also terrifically happy to have been able to co-author my first (but I am sure not last!) book with Matthew Johnson, a great friend and amazing colleague. This book was his idea, and thoroughly enjoyed working together and with all the fantastic and diverse contributors.

My interest in the topic comes from my deep dissatisfaction with the Trump presidency. As a long-time activist for peace, justice, human rights and gender equality, it was tremendously upsetting to see a candidate for the highest office in the U.S. who has been accused multiple times of sexual assault and who routinely makes disparaging and misogynistic comments. That such a person could win the presidency is appalling and begs for critical analysis. I believe this book offers some of that, although more is definitely needed. 

I continue to help organize and agitate nonviolently against many social injustices, and the Trump presidency and all that it represents in terms of gender equality and feminism have done nothing but reinforce the need for such efforts. I remain hopeful that the 2018 elections will bring dramatic disruption of the status quo and that the many dedicated activists, advocates and scholars already working on promoting gender equality will ring in a seat-tide of change."


"Trumpism was my first published book, and I have Cambridge Scholars to thank for it. I also have my co-editor to thank, Dr. Laura Finley, who has published through Cambridge Scholars Publishing before and recommended it due to its author-friendly process. It was nice to not only publish a book about a timely and important issue but also to see the finished product reflect the original vision, which dated back to election day 2016 and haunts me slightly less now that I have helped spawn an eloquent response. I wanted voices of those who felt most threatened by the rise of Trump to be represented, and I wanted it to be clear that, despite the media's initial willingness to give Trump 'a chance,' that there was no chance to be given if one supports the rights of women, immigrants, black people, and other marginalized communities. The opposition's worst fears have been realized two years into his administration. 

The book has inspired me to write more and to maintain contact with the contributors, many of whom continue to publish on related subjects. Another project is in the works now that there is less of a knee-jerk reaction to Trump in the United States and more long-term organizing and campaigning toward a more progressive future. #MeToo is perhaps the most powerful response to Trumpism to date, and I plan to conduct my PhD research on its aspirations. I hope to contribute what little I can to this important cause."

Meet our Authors: John Anthony Butler - April 2019 11 April 2019

John Anthony Butler holds an MA from the University of Toronto and a PhD from the University of Manitoba, Canada. He has taught at the university level in Canada, Nigeria and Japan, and has published several books on seventeenth-century subjects, including a biography of Richard Cromwell and a translation of Lord Herbert of Chirbury’s De religione gentilium, as well as editions of Sir Thomas Herbert’s Travels and Sir Paul Rycaut’s Present State of the Ottoman Empire.

His latest book is an edition of John Greaves’s Pyramidographia (2018), and he has also published a book of essays on little-known travel-writers, Off the Beaten Track (2017).

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, John has authored Sir Jerome Horsey’s Travels and Adventures


John described his experience with Cambridge Scholars Publishing as wholly positive, chiefly praising the pleasant nature of our staff, the speed and quality of the publishing process as well as recommending us to other scholars.

"I am a retired Professor of English currently living in Canada, who has taught at universities in Canada, Nigeria and Japan. My areas are Early Modern Travel Literature, Asian Studies and the Intellectual History of the Seventeenth Century. Cambridge Scholars Publishing provided me with a chance to publish books which were out of the mainstream academic category, which for me is their greatest asset. They are most definitely not a vanity press, and the courtesy as well as the professionalism of their staff was very much appreciated during the publishing process, which was easy, pleasant and efficient, making the whole experience with them a positive one. They are able to produce an excellent-quality product within a short time (under six months), which should also be a recommendation for authors who need to get into print quickly in order to have material on their CVs. All in all, the experience has been very rewarding, and I would certainly suggest that young scholars give CSP serious consideration."

I would strongly recommend Cambridge Scholars Publishing to any academic with a sound research product.”

Meet our Authors: Tami Yaguri - March 2019 15 March 2019

Dr Tami Yaguri is an Associate Professor of Philosophy with a PhD from Tel Aviv University. Her dissertation focuses on the Danish philosopher, Søren Kierkegaard. After more than two decades teaching in the philosophy department at Tel Aviv, she now trains advanced existential therapists and expressive arts therapy MA students at the College of Society and the Arts in Israel.

Placing philosophy into practice is one of her passions. She promotes this in public talks on human development, in radio and magazine interviews, and in counselling sessions on meaning in life. She is active in Kierkegaard research, and the author of many scholarly articles and books.

Unraveling Life’s Riddle is newly translated from Hebrew. In Israel, since 2016, it has gone through three editions. The book links theories of life’s meaning from major philosophers and psychologists to both in-depth interviews with persons seeking meaning in their lives and to autobiographical revelations.

Tami describes her experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:

“This is the second book that I’ve published with Cambridge Scholars Publishing (CSP). After my very positive experience with the publication of the first book, I didn’t hesitate to engage with CSP for this book. I was even more impressed this time around. The efficiency, speed of production, professionality at every level, has even increased. At each stage of the process I was introduced to the person in charge. Each and every one of them was polite, encouraging and clear in walking me through the process. I wish every author the positive experience of working with such publication house.”
