The library journal Choice has selected Sharon L. James and Sheila Dillon‘s A Companion to Women in the Ancient World as an one of its Outstanding Academic Titles of 2012 in Ancient History.
“Choice grants this award to fewer than three percent of the books that are sent to it for review,” Prof. James explained. “My co-editor, Sheila Dillon, and I — along with our thirty-nine contributors — are very pleased that our Companion is one of them.”
Additionally, the Association of American Publishers gave the volume honorable mention in its 2012 PROSE Awards under the category of “Single Volume Reference in Humanities and Social Sciences.”
Prof. James partnered with Prof. Dillon, associate professor of art history at Duke University, to co-edit the volume for Wiley-Blackwell.
