University Press Week: Politics

Happy University Press Week! The university press community amplifies voices, disciplines, and communities.

University presses publish authors from around the world and right at home, writing on subjects that are broad, niche, and every level of inquiry in between. Without university presses, many of these authors or subjects would not be heard so clearly in the marketplace of ideas.

Join us all week for the UP Week Blog Tour!
