WHO ARE WE, ANYHOW? / /
The University of Chicago Press has been publishing books and journals for discriminating readers since its founding in 1891.
We’re home to a rich variety of scholarly titles, trade publications, top-shelf biographies, dozens of academic journals (including Critical Inquiry, the American Journal of Sociology, the American Historical Review, Afterall, and Signs), and an elite reference list (The Chicago Manual of Style, now in its sixteenth edition). We distribute a diverse list of client presses (over seventy-five and growing!), from the British Library and Seagull Books to the University of Alaska Press. It’s a notch on our belt to say we’ve published 11,000 books strong since 1892—a number we’re delighted to add to every day!
We’re proud to be at the forefront of digital efforts in scholarly publishing and you can find almost all of our new titles and a curated (and climbing!) backlist available as ebooks, with excerpts, sample chapters, authors’ websites, and image portfolios available online at the Press’s website:
