Bob Prior, executive editor, has acquired world rights to Tara White’s Dignity Neuroscience.

Tara White—a neuroscientist and Assistant Professor (Research) in the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences at Brown University School of Public Health—introduces the idea that our cherished human rights are grounded in our shared neurobiology and provides new tools for thinking about what we owe one another in this time of change and instability. This is her debut book. (Fall 2025)

Prior has also acquired world English rights to David N Hackney’s The Decision: The Life-Changing Choices Facing Doctors, Patients, and Parents-to-be.

The Decision outlines how the Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade has dramatically impacted the way women and their physicians approach the critical, often life-changing decisions regarding pregnancy. Hackney is Director of Maternal Fetal Medicine at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, and Associate Professor of Reproductive Biology at Case Western Reserve University. This is his debut book. (Spring 2025)
