Book Reviews

Interested in a Book Review but not a fan of waiting a year or more to see it posted online? If so, then consider undertaking a review for Alternate Routes where reviews are posted on an ongoing basis. Typically, completed reviews are expected within an 8-10 week period. Before requesting a book to review, you should be familiar with Alternate Routes’ formatting requirements and standards available under Guidelines.

Also, please be sure to visit our website to read book reviews that have been published in past issues. If you're interested in reviewing a particular book but do not see it listed below, send us an email and we will work with you to get it. For further information contact: AltRoutesReviews@gmail.com

Reviewers should have a Ph.D., or at least be advanced graduate students already writing their doctoral dissertations. They must have sufficient expertise in the field of the book they propose to review. We also welcome reviews from practitioners and community-based researchers. The list of available books for review is updated monthly.
