APAD books
APAD publishes books, resulting from its international conferences or research carried on by its members. Fourteen books have been published by APAD since the association’s inception, most of them by Karthala Publishing House, in the “Men and Societies” collection. Many of them have become classics. Three collective books resulting from APAD conferences have been published by other publishers.

APAD wishes to publish one or two books every year, including books based on excellent theses in its field. Currently co-directed by Sylvie Ayimpam and Philippe Lavigne Delville, the APAD-Karthala series has an comité de lecture international since early 2019. Manuscripts, of international level and with a maximum length of 800,000 characters, should be sent to ouvrage@apad-association.org.

In order to guarantee the relevance of the proposals and their quality, the manuscripts coming from a thesis must be accompanied by the defence report and a letter of support. Written by a senior researcher who is an APAD member, thesis director or member of jury of the thesis in question, this letter should highlight the originality of the thesis, its quality and its relevance for APAD. Each manuscript is evaluated by two researchers, members of the reading committee, or from outside if the subject justifies it.
