Our list of publications includes books and materials of interest in all areas of education from infant/toddler to adult learning. We also publish works in related subjects like psychology, sociology and culture, history, philosophy, and women's studies. Our authors include seasoned practitioners and scholars as well as fresh new talent from around the world.
Many of our books cross disciplinary boundaries in ways that are always of interest and frequently provocative. Though sometimes controversial, our publishing decisions are supported by grounded research and reviewed by authorities in the field. Through our series editors, editorial advisory boards, and peer reviewers, we strive to ensure that what we publish deserves our readers' attention and contributes to deepening the understanding and improvement of the practice of education. We invite you to browse our catalog and series to see the breadth and depth of our offerings.
