In re Cambridge UP's failing to publish the Karakasidou Macedonian
ethnography, the several full-text stories that have been posted here cover
the basic details. There's also a good article in the US 'trade-paper'
CHRONICLE OF HIGHER EDUCATION, 16 Feb. 1996, pp. A14-A15. It gives some
greater depth on the history of Prof. Karakasidou's research and its
reception over the years. An interesting fact not in the articles posted
so far is a statement by Prof. Herzfeld regarding his conveying to CUP that
when Prof. Karakasidou was a visting prof. at Harvard, he had alerted the
university police to threats she had received in Greece and asking that HU
police protect both her and himself. There were no incidents that
year--which Prof. Herzfeld says he told CUP to underline that nothing had
happened, but which CUP interpreted as evidence that they were subject to
threat if they published the monograph. CHE posts only short descriptions
of articles, rather than full-text, but the article is worth pursuing.
