Lynne Rienner Publishers

Founded in 1984, Lynne Rienner Publishers remains a rare, independent presence in scholarly and textbook publishing.

"Independent" means a lot of different things to us: Taking chances on new ideas. Being free of the restrictions of corporate headquarters or lenders. Publishing each book and journal with care, from the external review process ... to professional copyediting, typesetting, and proofreading ... to quality manufacturing ... to thorough promotion and world-wide distribution. We are also determined to keep our prices as low as possible.

Where we are not independent is in our relationship with the community of people whom we publish, and publish for. One of the aspects of publishing that all of us here love most is being part of that international, interdependent community.

We publish in the fields of international studies and comparative politics (all world regions), US politics, and sociology and criminology (with a US focus). We also have a small list of third world literature in translation, including books by such notable authors as Naguib Mahfouz, Ghassan Kanafani, Maryse Conde, Derek Walcott, and Tawfiq al-Hakim.
