Johns Hopkins University Press had a pleasant surprise in store for me at last week’s History of Science Society meeting in San Diego: advance copies of my book! The fabulous people in production moved heaven and earth to get bound books to the conference two-and-a-half months ahead of the original publication date (February 2013). Thanks to MIT’s Margy Avery for capturing the moment when Bob Brugger, my steadfast Hopkins editor, made my night.
Alas, the three copies of Competing with the Soviets that the Press sent to HSS are currently the only extant copies, but the rest of the bunch should be reaching the warehouse soon. But fear not! You can place your order with Hopkins now, for shipping very soonish. It’s a bargain, too, at the classroom friendly price of $19.95.
