New Village Press
New Village Press has been a publisher in the humanities and social sciences since 2005, best known for transdisciplinary books in urban sociology, community cultural development, and healthy city design. Our titles aim to animate emerging movements in societal transformation with true stories about collaborative community building and the creative new roles that artists and scholars, citizens and planners can play in public life.
Library of Arabic Literature
Supported by a grant from the New York University Abu Dhabi Institute, and established in partnership with NYU Press, the Library of Arabic Literature offers Arabic editions and English translations of significant works of Arabic literature, with an emphasis on the seventh to nineteenth centuries. The Library of Arabic Literature thus includes texts from the pre-Islamic era to the cusp of the modern period, and encompasses a wide range of genres, including poetry, poetics, fiction, religion, philosophy, law, science, history, and historiography.
Books in the series are edited and translated by internationally recognized scholars and are published in parallel-text format with Arabic and English on facing pages, and are also made available as English-only paperbacks.
Monthly Review Press
Since 1999, NYUP has been distributing Monthly Review Press to the book trade. Monthly Review magazine and its book publishing arm, Monthly Review Press, have been leading publishers of left scholarship since 1949. Our mission is to educate readers in critical analyses of capitalism and to provide a responsible platform for neglected and emerging scholarship on a wide range of progressive issues. Our tax-exempt status is predicated on our mission as an educational publisher promoting socialist scholarship and filling a demonstrable educational gap. Our publications aim for accessibility and clarity.
American Literatures Initiative
The American Literatures Initiative is a collaborative book publishing program, supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, to create new opportunities for publication in under-served and emerging areas of the humanities.
This five-press publishing collaboration—New York University Press, Fordham University Press, Rutgers University Press, Temple University Press, and the University of Virginia Press—will confront the publishing crisis in literature and literary studies, where the annual number of university press books has declined steeply in recent years, placing younger scholars at a disadvantage when writing their first books.
Early American Places
Our collective goal is to establish Early American Places as one of the most important homes for field-defining first books about early American history. Partner presses will acquire in their delineated geographic areas. Responsibility for signing books will reside with editors at the individual presses involved, who will be governed by their institutions’ guidelines and practices concerning peer review, editorial board approval, manuscript revisions, and contracts. Books in the series will be marketed through a joint effort by the three collaborating publishers, and at the EAP website.
NOMOS is the annual yearbook of the American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy. The ASPLP was begun in 1955 by Carl Friedrich to bring together a group of political scientists, philosophers and law scholars interested in exploring legal and political philosophy outside of their home disciplines. The main activity of the society is its annual meeting held on a topic chosen in advance by the ASPLP membership, at which three papers—one from each of the participating disciplines—are presented. The society publishes these papers, along with formal commentary and invited additional essays, in the NOMOS volumes.
Institute for the Study of the Ancient World
In collaboration with NYU’s Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, NYU Press publishes advanced scholarly research in the study of ancient civilizations, available in both print and e-book editions. Focusing on the shared development of cultures from the Mediterranean basin to the Pacific Ocean, ISAW publications include archaeological reports, monographs, and edited collections that offer an unshuttered view of antiquity across vast stretches of time and place.

Clay Sanskrit Library
The Clay Sanskrit Library, co-published by NYU Press and the JJC Foundation, has been created to introduce classical Sanskrit literature to a wide international readership. This literature combines great beauty, enormous variety and more than three thousand years of continuous history and development.
For many interested readers, access to this vast treasure store has been hindered by an unfamiliar language and a difficult script. The new Clay Sanskrit Library makes everything easier: the Sanskrit text, written in familiar Roman letters, faces the English translation, and the convenient pocket size (4.5″ X 6.5″) is both elegant and practical. Each book, with a handsome jacket, retails for only $22.00.
NYU Press partners with the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) on a joint publishing imprint. NYU Press publishes and distributes original scholarship derived from SSRC research and programs. Independent and not-for-profit, the SSRC is a leading organization for interdisciplinary, innovative public social science. The SSRC is a pioneer in the social sciences, building international networks, mobilizing knowledge on important public issues, and educating and training the next generation of social science researchers.
