Faculty Bookshelf highlights university authors

Bookshelf full of books.


Texas Woman’s University faculty are leaders in their field, with an extensive list of books to their credit. The Faculty Bookshelf is a sampling of their recent work, listing only books written or edited by university faculty members from all three campuses during the past two years. Topics run the range of bullying and social media to politics and policies in the European Union to nursing informatics. Details of the TWU faculty bookshelf are below. The list does not include their many works published in magazines and scholarly journals, nor the many papers presented at conferences.
