The Editors

Our Publishing

Yale University Press London (YUPL) publishes world class scholarship for a broad readership.
Our aim is to produce serious works that contribute to a global understanding of human affairs, that stimulate public debate, educate both within and outside the classroom, and enhance cultural life. Our authors write prize-winning histories, investigate topics of current political and social interest, and illuminate great cultural and artistic achievements.

YUPL’s list is evolving. The Press and its acquiring editors are actively committed to a diverse list of books focusing on contemporary and historic issues. We actively welcome new voices and scholarship representing the entire community we serve.
