Cornell University Press
Cornell University Press fosters a culture of broad and sustained inquiry through the publication of scholarship that is engaged, influential, and of lasting significance.
Established in 1869 as the first American university press, shortly after the founding of Cornell, the press embodies and advances the university’s core values by disseminating fundamental and practical knowledge, while commanding its own distinct editorial profile. The press, as part of a land-grant institution, is also dedicated to transforming research into publications that reach and benefit the wider public.
Works published under its imprints reflect a commitment to excellence through rigorous evaluation, skillful editing, thoughtful design, strategic marketing, and global outreach.
Cornell University Press publishes nonfiction, with particular strengths in anthropology, Asian studies, classics, geography, higher education, history (US, European, Asian, and military), literary and cultural studies, medieval studies, New York City and State, politics and international relations, Russian and Eurasian studies, sociology, and urban studies.
