histories of certain relevant doctrines or practices(e.g., pacifism, the "free"

or "believers" church, etc.). The criteria are that the subjectmatter must be

historical and must show someconnection to the Anabaptist, Mennonite,

or related traditions---plus, of course, standard criteria ofscholarship and

good writing. For the list of current and past SAMH titles,consult the back

cover of a recent MENNONITE QUARTERLY REVIEW.Restrictions: No

anthologies or collections of sources. Only manuscripts crafted tobe books.

(Some dissertations may qualify, but in practice many do not.)No

tentative drafts: the editorshave resources to deal only with what the

author considers the finished product. Inthe past the series has published

almost exclusively through Herald Press,Mennonite publisher at

Scottdale Pennsylvania;however the editors are now willing to negotiate

with other scholarly presses who might considerthe SAMH imprimatur

to be an advantage for the particular manuscript.
