Having been among the academic community for some time, I was wondering if anyone has been published academically or scholarly via a book or Journal,
The reason I am asking is because I have been considered for two book projects, both historical and academic/scholarly. Thus far, one deals with
American/US diplomatic recognition policies from WWII to 1979, covering diplomatic recognition criteria, international law, foreign policy interests
and how they affect diplomatic recognition, how humanitarian issues affect diplomatic recognition, etc. The subject matter will vary but will deal
with Israel, China, Taiwan, North Korea, and among other nations.
The other book will deal with a US Ambassador/Diplomat to China and his diary. It will basically be a dairy turned to book situation. The diary is
archived at and maintained by Georgetown University. The diary covers the ambassador's observations in China, meetings/talks with Chinese officials,
and his concern for the religious persecutions that were taking place [and still are] during his 1960s tenure.
In asking what I have, I am basically seeking a general insight into the writing, researching, and publishing processes for which others who have
written and published material could give as guidance advice. Both books may become co-authored, being I am working with a couple Professors [PhD's.]
on these two projects.
Comments or thoughts welcome, and thank you for your imput.
