ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN PUBLISHERS ANNOUNCES THE WINNERS OF THE 2007 PSP AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE


February 7, 2008, Washington, DC, – The Professional and Scholarly Publishing Division of the Association of American Publishers today announced the winner of the R.R. Hawkins Award for the Outstanding Professional, Reference or Scholarly Work of 2007. This year’s 14-member judging panel selected The Dream of the Poem by Peter Cole, published by Princeton University Press, to receive the R.R. Hawkins Award, which is named for the former head of the Science and Technology Division of the New York Public Library.

Peter Cole’s book, The Dream of the Poem, is the first to represent, collect and give significant scholarly attention to the Hebrew poets in Muslim and Christian Spain, a period known for being poetically very rich, but largely Muslim and where Hebrew poetry had until now been largely overlooked. Cole, for the first time, brings to English language readers, a comprehensive collection of what is now considered to be some of the finest poetry of the European Middle ages and an indispensable part of Jewish literature since the Bible.


In addition to the Hawkins Award, awards will be given in 30 categories for outstanding books, journals and digital products covering a wide range of academic disciplines. The awards will be presented today at a special awards luncheon during the PSP Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.


This year’s awards featured new categories including three new electronic publishing awards; three new journal publishing awards; and five new “best of” book awards. For the first time, the PSP Electronic Information Committee and Journals Committee collaborated throughout the planning and judging stages to enhance and re-shape the awards by creating new categories and judging criteria. Plans call for an expanded publicity and marketing campaign for all awards winners.


AAP President and CEO Pat Schroeder extended the Association’s congratulations to all of the PSP Award honorees, noting that “promoting and encouraging the dissemination of scholarship is one of AAP’s primary missions,” and highlighting the special honor of being chosen by one’s peers for these awards. This year’s panel of expert judges was made up of librarians, academics and working publishers.

The Association of American Publishers is the national trade association of the U.S. book publishing industry. AAP’s more than 300 members include most of the major commercial publishers in the United States, as well as smaller and non-profit publishers, university presses and scholarly societies—small and large. AAP members publish hardcover and paperback books in every field, educational materials for the elementary, secondary, postsecondary, and professional markets, scholarly journals, computer software, and electronic products and services. The protection of intellectual property rights in all media, the defense of the freedom to read and the freedom to publish at home and abroad, and the promotion of reading and literacy are among the Association’s highest priorities.

Information on the Hawkins Award winners and a complete list of the winners in all categories is attached.
