The Multidisciplinary Journal of Social Protest
Book Review Information
Please see the general Contention submission guide for formatting, style, and submission details.
Contention welcomes reviews of new books, articles, and conference papers or, exceptionally, of new editions of older influential books. Reviews should be 800 to 1,200 words.
Each review should be accompanied by a cover page with the following information:
The review should provide a short and clear overview of the work's content, as well as an estimation about its intended audience. In like with Contention's multidisciplinary audience, book reviews that link two or more fields of research or that illustrates the benefit of a book for relevant disciplines are especially welcomed.
The review should also be a critical evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the book, with the intellectual vigorousness, accuracy, and the high standards expected in any academic article. These evaluations can consider methodological concerns, evidence provided for the argument, and comparisons with other works on related subjects, where appropriate. Contention aims to publish book reviews that are more than mere descriptions of the work.
