Books

The Center for Regional Studies encourages faculty to submit their completed research to academic publishers that focus on the Southwest such as the UNM Press and others.  Authors may apply for small grants to offset the costs of publication when subventions are required by the publisher.  Examples of subventions are the costs of illustrations, artwork, maps, or the preparation of indices. Some of the books that have resulted from CRS funding are listed below.
