The University of Notre Dame Press is excited to present its Fall 2019 Catalog. As a premier American university press, we publish outstanding original print and digital works by leading scholars and intellectuals. With this charge, we are a critical extension of our university's identity and mission.

This fall, the Press will be releasing numerous books with Notre Dame connections that range from biographies to poetry. These upcoming titles include:

  • The Glory and The Burden by Robert Schmuhl, Walter H. Annenberg-Edmund P. Joyce Chair Emeritus in American Studies and Journalism, analyzes how the office of the presidency has evolved from FDR to Trump. It’s the kind of book that every American should read in the run-up to the next presidential election.
  • March 1917, The Red Wheel, Node III, Book 2, by Nobel prize-winner Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn, is set during March 13–15, 1917, the Russian Revolution's turbulent second week. This volume is part of The Center for Ethics and Culture Solzhenitsyn Series and is translated by Marian Schwartz.
  • International best-selling author and theologian Tomáš Halík is a University Fellow with the Notre Dame Institute of Advanced Studies. His book, From the Underground Church to Freedom, is a compelling autobiography detailing his spiritual journey as a secretly ordained priest in Communist Czechoslovakia.
  • U.S.-Vatican Relations, 1975–1980 by P. Peter Sarros will interest students and scholars of history and political science, especially in the fields of diplomatic relations and church history.
  • Faith and Science at Notre Dame focuses on Rev. John Augustine Zahm, a Holy Cross priest, science professor, and vice president at the University of Notre Dame. John Slattery provides an original and well-written account of Zahm’s life and career.
  • Inclusive Populism is the first book in the Contending Modernities series edited by Notre Dame faculty Ebrahim Moosa, Atalia Omer, and Scott Appleby. Angus Ritchie vividly demonstrates that religious diversity can invigorate and stabilize liberal democracies
  • Leia Penina Wilson is the 2019 winner of the Ernest Sandeen Prize in Poetry, edited by Notre Dame faculty Orlando Ricardo Menes and Joyelle McSweeney. Wilson's book, Children are Splinters of Wood, is a mythical ode to the question about what it means to be a girl.
  • Ann W. Astell, Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame, is the editor of Saving Fear in Christian Spirituality a collection of essays on the relationship between the fear and the love of God. 

We hope that you will enjoy these titles and other books from the University of Notre Dame Press.
