How are scholarly books different from regular books?  Scholarly books exist to contribute to knowledge, and they support the research of academics and scholars at all levels.  All scholarly books go through an extensive process in which experts in the field read the manuscripts and decide if the book is worthy to be published.  In other words, scholarly books are peer reviewed sources.
