Our subject areas

We commission and publish books across the social sciences, sciences, and humanities, from literature to physics, from classics to cognitive science.

Our commitment

  • We work with authors to enrich scholarly communities and to have an impact in the world.

  • We believe in old fashioned editing. Our relationship with authors begins with developing the idea and continues through collaborative work on the script, to publication and beyond.

  • We believe our authors work in global academic communities and that we serve them best if we work globally too. For this reason, we work closely with our colleagues in Princeton and around the world in commissioning books, coordinating our publicity and marketing, and in our sales efforts.
