Pressing issues

Phil Pochoda, director of the
University Press, said wheo he
tells people that he works for
the University Press, they often
assume that he works for anews-
paper or a printing press - not
that he's in the business of pub-
lishing books. .
That maybe because until the
recent headline-making con-
troversy surrounding the pub-
lication of Joel Kovel's book,
"Overcoming Zionism," not many
students had heard of the Univer-
sityPress.
So what does the University
Press do?
Pochoda said that out of 90 uni-
versitypresses nationwide, Michi-
gan's is within the top ten in size.
But Pochoda said it isn't uncom-
mon for university presses to go
largelyunnoticed by students.
The University Press was
CRIME NOTES

founded 77 years ago to dissemi-
nate scholarship, Pochoda said.
Research universities have an
obligation to sponsor, generate
and publish their findings, he said.
But most commercial publishing
companies shy away from publish-
ing scholarly works, because they
only reach a small audience and do
not bring much profit.
The only way to guarantee that
research got published was to
have a university press, Pochoda
explained.
The University of Michigan
Press, located at 839 Greene St.,
publishes about150 books per year
and has about 2,500 books cur-
rently in print.
Notable bestsellers this sea-
son have been "The Strategy of
Campaigning," which was co-
authored by Condoleezza Rice,
University Prof. David Halperin's

"What Do Gay Men Want" and
Ronald Magill Jr.'s "Chic Ironic
Bitterness."
Pochoda said the Univer-
sity Press specializes in certain
academic areas and routinely
publishes books in classics, eco-
nomics, theater studies and per-
formance, political: science and
cultural studies.
The University Press also has
a notably large English as a Sec-
ond Language department, he
said.
The University Press also pub-
lishes regional and historical
books that appeal to a wider audi-
ence than scholarly publications
might - like books about the state
of Michigan.
