American Meteorological Society (AMS) Books publishes historical works in the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences. We seek proposals for single authored and edited volumes in two categories: (1) books that reach beyond the academy to a broad readership and (2) monographs, or detailed studies on a single specialized topic, perhaps collecting the work of several authors, and resulting in a comprehensive, lasting contribution or volume of record. Possibilities include, but are not limited to short, 50-60,000–word biographies, studies of transformative ideas or technologies, and other thematic approaches. All volumes are professionally produced in high quality print and electronic formats, and are marketed and distributed by the University of Chicago Press. Authors earn royalties from the AMS and may be eligible for advances.
Prospective authors will find contact information and proposal guidelines at the AMS web site or may contact directly the managing editor, Sarah Jane Shangraw, firstname.lastname@example.org or the historical editor, Jim Fleming, email@example.com.
