The Scholar’s Choice has a long and successful history of managing academic book exhibits, and we welcome them to our meeting.  Any member interested in having their book displayed at the meeting should contact their publisher as soon as possible to see if they are amenable to sending the book for exhibit.  Please keep in mind that the publishers pay a fee to display with The Scholar’s Choice and may not have the marketing budget necessary to honor all requests, particularly for older titles.  The Scholar’s Choice asks that books be relevant to the meeting topics.  Reservations from the publishers will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until their exhibit space is full.  All requests must come from the publishers, not the author.

PM Press is pleased to join the 69th Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Social Problems again this year!  PM was founded at the end of 2007 by a small collection of folks with decades of publishing, media, and organizing experience.  PM Press co-conspirators have published and distributed hundreds of books, pamphlets, CDs, and DVDs.  Members of PM have founded enduring book fairs, spearheaded victorious tenant organizing campaigns, and worked closely with bookstores, academic conferences, and even rock bands to deliver political and challenging ideas to all walks of life.  They’re old enough to know what they’re doing and young enough to know what’s at stake.  They create radical and stimulating fiction and nonfiction books, pamphlets, t-shirts, visual and audio materials to educate, entertain, and inspire.  They aim to distribute these through every available channel with every available technology.  Learn more:
