About The Press

A publisher of original scholarship since its founding in 1916, New York University Press is a department of the New York University Division of Libraries. Working across the humanities and social sciences, Ҵý has award-winning lists in sociology, law, cultural and American studies, religion, American history, anthropology, politics, criminology, media and communication, literary studies, and psychology. Several key themes or topics, especially race, ethnicity, gender, and youth studies, unify all our publishing disciplines.

Ҵý publishes over 110 new books each year, with a backlist of nearly 3,000 titles in print and annual sales revenue of $4.5 million. All our books are published in simultaneous print and ebook formats, and are available from a wide array of retailers.

Recent new book series at the Press include Avidly Reads, Ҵý Classics, LGBTQ Politics, Latina/o Sociology, and Critical Cultural Communication.

Our key co-publishing programs include the American Literatures Initiative and the Early American Places series—university press publishing collaborations funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which supports the publication of first book by scholars. The Press also co-publishes the Clay Sanskrit Library, and, most recently, with the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute, the Library of Arabic Literature. We also serve as the distributor of books.

Ҵý has been a member of the Association of University Presses (AUPresses) since 1937.
