Georgetown University Press supports the academic mission of Georgetown University by publishing scholarly books and journals for a diverse, worldwide readership. These publications, written by an international group of authors representing a broad range of intellectual perspectives, reflect the academic and institutional strengths of the university. We publish peer-reviewed works of academic distinction, with exceptional editorial and production quality, in five subjects: bioethics; international affairs & human rights; languages & linguistics; political science, public policy & public management; and religion & ethics.
The beginnings of Georgetown University Press can be traced to 1964 when we were a part of the School of Languages and Linguistics. Over the years, we have always committed ourselves to illuminating, clarifying and responding to the world’s most difficult questions. Today this commitment continues with our publications helping to unite people speaking different languages, literally and figuratively. We publish approximately forty new books a year, as well as the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics, with an active list of close to 600 titles. Many of our books are available in electronic formats and our textbooks explore the latest pedagogy with a variety of media to engage learning and do our best to serve the scholarly community.
Georgetown University Press is a wonderful place to work. In 2009, we were named as one of the “Top 10 Best Book Publishing Companies to Work For” by Book Business Magazine. This was in part thanks to rocking Halloween parties and the best staff meeting puns this side of the Potomac, but also due to the distinctive culture of the Press—one that promotes creativity and collegiality. The result is a dedicated and dynamic team passionate about what we publish. Because of this more perfect union, Georgetown University Press is also an excellent place to publish your next book.
Many of our books are also available from select ebook retailers like Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble, eBooks.com, Google eBooks, and Reader Store.
