Dear Colleagues: 

On behalf of the Journal Voluntas, of ISTR, edited by Prof. Bernard Enjolras, and as book review editor, I would like to invite you and your colleagues to consider submitting a review for the Journal. 

I would like to call your attention that besides the usual book reviews we also included the possibility that authors propose essay reviews. You will find the general guidelines both for book and essay reviews in the Voluntas publisher webpage ( under "General Guidelines”. 

The deadline for submission of reviews is 15 of July. 

Bellow you will find the list of the books for review. Please contact me in case you are interested in reviewing. In doing it, please indicate and institutional address where the book should be sent. Please also provide a telephone number for possible contact and an institutional email.

If you have a recently published book or are aware of relevant books for the areas of interest of Voluntas readership I would very much appreciate if you could keep me informed. 

My best regards,  

Silvia Ferreira
