Two or three scholars with expertise in the topic of the manuscript will be asked to provide a constructively critical review and make a recommendation about publication. The reviews will be anonymous, but many presses will allow you to suggest well-qualified readers and to list anyone you would like them to avoid because of personal or professional conflicts of interest. Peer review for books is most often only partially masked, so the readers will know who you are.
