Congratulations to Paul Bartrop, Ph.D., our 52nd honoree in the FGCU Author Series of recently published books authored or edited by FGCU faculty and staff. Dr. Bartrop’s book, Resisting the Holocaust: Upstanders, Partisans, and Survivors, will be featured on the Library website during the month of February and displayed on a poster on the first floor of Library West in the FGCU Authors and New Books area.
Dr. Bartrop has been at FGCU since 2012 and serves as both Professor of History and the Director of the Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Genocide Studies. He is the author and/or editor of at least 16 books on historical topics, primarily focusing on genocide and the Holocaust. Two of his books, Modern Genocide: The Definitive Resource and Document Collection and A Biographical Encyclopedia of Contemporary Genocide: Portraits of Evil and Good, were recognized as Outstanding Academic Titles by Choice in 2013 and 2016 respectively. Dr. Bartrop also contributes articles and chapters to other edited works and has presented at numerous conferences as a renowned historian and scholar of the Holocaust and genocide.
Each month a recent book authored by FGCU staff or faculty is selected and placed on display with an accompanying poster on the first floor of Library West in the FGCU Authors and New Books area. The author and book are also featured on the Library’s website, news blog, and Facebook page. FGCU faculty and staff are encouraged to notify the relevant subject specialist librarian if they publish a book.
