MESA - Middle East Studies Association

MESA ’14 Book Bazaar

The Book Bazaar is an extremely popular and crucial element of MESA's annual meeting. It features an average of 90 exhibitors (from university presses and publishing houses to Mom & Pop shops) and offers the latest publications in the field.

An integral part of MESA's Book Bazaar is the Cooperative Book Display located at the MESA booth. If you are the author of an independently published book or perhaps a small press with few Middle East titles, consider MESA's Cooperative Book Display. It costs just $40/title (plus two copies of the publication) to have your publication displayed at MESA ’14.
