Product Descriptions

The University of Chicago Press is the largest and one of the oldest of the American university presses. It was founded in 1892 as a division of the then newly-established University of Chicago. The Press, which publishes books for academics as well as for the public has over 4,000 titles in print with 250 to 300 new titles added each year.

In addition to publishing the results of research for communities of scholars, the Press presents innovative scholarship in ways that inform and engage general readers. It develops reference works and educational texts that draw upon and support scholarly programs and that extend the intellectual reach of the Press. It publishes significant non-scholarly work by writers, artists, and intellectuals from within and beyond the academy; translations of important foreign-language texts, both historical and contemporary; and books that contribute to the public’s understanding of Chicago and its region. In all of this, the Press is guided by the judgment of individual editors who work to build a broad but coherent publishing program engaged with authors and readers around the world.

The Press also recognizes the obligation to match the form of its publications to readers’ needs by pursuing innovations in print and non-print technologies. In its books and journals programs the Press pioneers new ways of extending the availability and accessibility of knowledge, and the intellectual exchange that thrives on them. Many University of Chicago Press titles are available in electronic format.
