Is this peer-reviewed? I can't tell...
4. Peer-review generally is applied to articles and not books; however, books published by university presses almost always undergo a peer review process. University presses generally have two to three independent reviewers take a first pass through the book, then the press' editorial review board does a final review. You can find out who the publisher is for a book by going to DELCAT, clicking on the title of the book then scroll down to the page to find the section that says "Publication."
