Melissa Flamson’s work and her professionalism are unparalleled. I am the executive editor of the ten-volume anthology series, The Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization, published by Yale University Press. Thousands of selections have needed searches for copyrights and heirs. Through her myriad contacts, Melissa has negotiated and obtained rights and kept the project going. As we move into digital production, Melissa has learned the laws and conventions of numerous countries. Her advice and skills have made our series a reality.
