Yale University Press is proud to announce that three of our books have been chosen by the New York Times for their list of 100 Notable Books of 2007. Those books are Hugh Brogan’s Alexis de Tocqueville: A Life, Janet Malcolm’s Two Lives: Gertrude and Alice, and Tim Jeal’s Stanley: The Impossible Life of Africa’s Greatest Explorer.
For their annual Holiday Books edition, the New York Times Sunday Book Review selects 100 “outstanding works from the last year.” These three YUP books were selected from all of the books reviewed by the NYT since last year’s list was printed on December 3, 2006. A print version of the list will run in the December 2, 2007 edition of the Book Review.
