Overview

I worked for Lexington Books as an acquisitions editor for a year and a half. My areas of expertise were American political science and Middle Eastern studies. I also worked for my college as a writing tutor helping students draft and create essays, cover letters, and more.

My main focus is on making sure that the author hits their points. I am very attentive if needed for those in the drafting process. Once the project is finished I will go through and look for any grammar mistakes or areas where a concept is lost.

Having worked with students before, I am very easy-going and want to make this process as enjoyable as possible while still helping achieve a great work!

Another Love

Asma Abbas

In a time when our loves feel conscripted and exhausted by what we often do not remember desiring, Another Love: A Politics of the Unrequited explores the form, method, imperatives, and inflections of love in the global post colony, and offers a way to re-apprehend and re-inscribe love in an anticolonial, materialist, and nonfascist politics and aesthetics. The figure of “the unrequited” is in... read more

Heidegger’s Nietzsche

José Daniel Parra

Heidegger´s Nietzsche: European Modernity and the Philosophy of the Future offers a study of two key figures in the history of philosophy. By way of a textual interpretation of Martin Heidegger’s reading of Friedrich Nietzsche, it draws renewed attention to the question of ontology in the history of Western thought. The discussion unfolds in the context of an epochal period of transition in Eu... read more

AIDS-Trauma and Politics: American Literature and the Search for a Witness (Politics, Literature, & Film)

Aimee Pozorski

AIDS-Trauma and Politics considers American literary representations of the social and political silence surrounding the AIDS crisis in the U.S. in the 1980s. The book offers close readings of such authors as Paul Monette, Mark Doty, Rafael Campo, Sarah Schulman, Tony Kushner, and Larry Kramer in order to argue that the AIDS crisis was born largely without a witness and, as a result, marks a s... read more

New Critical Thinking

Sean Wilson

Ludwig Wittgenstein changed everything. To understand how, we need to understand what he did to the subject of critical reasoning. Wittgenstein didn’t leave us “philosophy”; he left a pathway for a more perspicuous intellect. This was caused by a psychological condition that made him meticulous and hypersensitive. He could abnormally perceive three natural phenomena: (a) the social traits impl... read more

Democracy and Its Enemies

Paul N. Goldstene

America, it is often argued, emerged from the Enlightenment. It follows that the prevailing elements of politics in the United States are echoes of struggles among what is here referred to as the moderate Enlightenment, the conservative Enlightenment, and the radical Enlightenment. These lead to conflicting political doctrines which variously address the fundamental questions of who should rul... read more

The Joke Is on Us

Julie A. Webber

This edited volume brings together scholars of comedy to assess how political comedy encounters neoliberal themes in contemporary media. Central to this task is the notion of genre; under neoliberal conditions (where market logics motivate most actions) genre becomes “mixed.” Once stable, discreet categories such as comedy, horror, drama and news and entertainment have become blurred so as to ... read more

Covering the Shi`a

Robert Tomlinson

Often demonized by the Western media and press, Hezbollah’s origins are rooted in activities of the Lebanese Shi`a in the late 1970s and early 80s. Covering the Shi`a: English Press Representation of the Lebanese Shi`a 1975-1985 chronicles how the English-language press and media represented the most consequential group in Lebanon to Western audiences during the critical period of 1975-1985.

Rethinking the Theory of Money, Credit, and Macroeconomics

John Smithin

This book provides a comprehensive re-working of the basic principles of monetary macroeconomics in an alternative monetary model (AMM) of economic growth, the business cycle, inflation and income distribution. These principles differ considerably from those advanced in the standard macroeconomics literature and in textbooks. However, the latter have been demonstrably unsuccessful in the promo... read more

Bryndee was enlisted Sep 9 2020 to proofread" The Corona Prohecy".The collaboration has now concluded some 3 months later. Bryndee has helped me over and above all my expectations, I gave her a jumble and she made good sense of it. I cant praise her enough and I wish her well in the future. Warwick Reid.

Bryndee provided valuable service. She pointed out three major areas that needed work. My opening was not on point. I began cleverly, but missed the center of the plot bullseye. She explained that clearly. A good developmental editor also sees areas that need clarification and further explanation. She found and identified those for me. Finally, I had a female character that Bryndee showed me h...
