Bootheina describes the experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars:

“When I wrote my first book, Doris Lessing: Poetics of Being and Time, I only considered submitting it to Cambridge Scholars, because they are a prestigious and quite selective publishing house. The staff are amazing; they accompanied me at every step, and their patience, collaboration and guidance were assets throughout the publishing process. I have since also published an edited volume, On Trauma and Traumatic Memory, with them, and I intend to continue publishing with Cambridge Scholars in the future (I have recently submitted a new proposal). I highly recommend Cambridge Scholars to every scholar who is looking for international recognition. I was so proud when friends from the USA, UK, Canada and elsewhere across the world sent me messages to say that they had come across my book at their respective universities. I congratulate Cambridge Scholars’ professional staff and thank them for all their attentiveness and patience with me all along the publishing process.
