Last month we mailed thousands of copies of our new magazine, the Berkshire Savant, to friends and colleagues and libraries around the US, UK, and elsewhere in the world. At least we thought we did. Margaux and I have been puzzling over the fact that our testers had not arrived, and we certainly haven’t been deluged with enquiries from the UK either. This morning we found out why: we are the victims, indirectly, of the terrorist attacks in London. Apparently mail into the UK is delayed because of increased security.
Ironic, isn’t it, given that we are promoting Patterns of Global Terrorism?
Here’s the latest comment on that title: “Until now, students, analysts, journalists, and professionals had to page through dozens of spine-broken volumes of State department reports to discern trends or trace historical developments. Thanks to Berkshire Publishing we can clear away a shelf of surplus tomes and replace it with a valuable two-book tool. With its clear charts, historical overviews and intelligent organization, this is a must for any serious researcher of global terrorism.”–Richard Miniter, bestselling author of Losing bin Laden and Shadow War and editor of the daily terrorism report at www.RichardMiniter.com.
