The MINERVA Center, Inc. began its book publication program in 1993.We currently have three titles in print and plan to expand our booklist as soon as funds become available. Many outstanding manuscripts inthe field of women's military studies have trouble finding mainstreampublishers. Feminist presses dislike military topics, and militarypresses dislike women in military roles.
Although MINERVA cannot publish as many books as we would like to, theCenter supports writers, small presses and self-publishers working onmanuscripts dealing with women in war or women and the military. Tell us about your books!
