Cornell University Press

Cornell University Press was established in 1869, giving it the distinction of being the first university press to be established in the United States, although it was inactive for several decades between 1890 and 1930. From that beginning, we have grown to be a major scholarly publisher, offering 150 new titles a year in many disciplines, including anthropology, classics, cultural studies, history, literary criticism and theory, medieval studies, philosophy, politics and international relations, psychology and psychiatry, and women's studies. Our many books in the life sciences and natural history are published under the Comstock Publishing Associates imprint, and a distinguished list of books in industrial and labor relations is offered under our ILR Press imprint.see more
