Editorial Director, Humanities & Social Sciences
As the publisher of Albert Einstein, Princeton University Press has a grand tradition in the history of science. We publish books in the history of knowledge and science in the broadest sense. Our list encompasses the history of the natural and physical sciences, from antiquity to the present,
while also incorporating the history of the humanities and the social sciences, the history of academic disciplines, and the history of the book. Throughout, our list strives to be global and diverse in period, topic, and methodology.
