The year 2012 marks a number of exciting milestones for Berghahn Books. Not only do we enter our 18th year since Marion published our first two books in 1994 (Uniting Germany and Imperial Germany), but we also started the year with a much-anticipated move for our New York offices from lower Manhattan across the East river to DUMBO, Brooklyn. We’re now well settled in – just a few final walls to paint and then there’s that minor plumbing issue with the kitchenette sink….but we’re otherwise enjoying the gentle rumble of the trains crossing the Manhattan bridge and lunch breaks on the waterfront next to the carousel.
If you can navigate your way from the subway, please do come visit us but allow extra time for the inevitable folly we’ve each endured of taking the long way!
So with the start of summer warming the cobblestones of the surrounding streets we are launching the Berghahn Books blog to bring you postings from myself as well as from my colleagues in both offices (apparently Oxford, England is supposed to also have its charms – something about picturesque spires, high table traditions, and magnificent surrounding rolling hills…). We’ll also be featuring the latest news from our publishing program together with contributions from our authors and other BB collaborators.
