University of British Columbia Press

UBC Press produces books integral to Canada’s cultural, political, and social fabric and is widely touted as the country’s pre-eminent social science publisher. Established in 1971 and now offering 900 titles in print and 65 to 70 new works per year, the Press publishes sophisticated and transformative works by authors whose thought and research push the boundaries of scholarly discourse and make a vital contribution to the democratic exchange of ideas. These skillfully edited and beautifully produced books are for readers with an interest in subjects that include: Canadian history, political science, the environment, Indigenous history and current issues, legal trends, social policy, sexuality studies, education, natural resources, communications, labour studies, historical geography, health policy, food studies, immigration, multiculturalism, and transnationalism. Located along the Pacific rim, UBC Press’s editorial scope also encompasses works that document and explore Asian history and contemporary society. In addition to the main imprint, UBC Press has four additional dedicated to publishing informed and engaging books for audiences beyond academia.
