Behind the Book

The University of Nebraska Press is a proud publisher of nonfiction books and scholarly journals across a wide variety of subject areas. But what does being a “proud publisher” mean exactly?

That question is what we would like to answer with our blog, Behind the Book.

We seek to provide content that will bring people together in search of conversation, thought-provoking ideas, behind-the-scenes looks at the publishing industry, and deeper insights into the minds and techniques of our authors. We aim to provide background stories behind the books we choose to publish and promote our authors as experts and scholars in their respective fields. We seek to share the ideas, personalities, stories, and people that make a publisher proud.
