The University of Texas Press is a book publisher—a focal point where the life experiences, insights, and specialized knowledge of writers converge to be disseminated in print.
By launching a scholarly press in 1950, the University of Texas made several important statements: books matter; books educate; and publishing good books is a public responsibility and a valuable component of the state's system of higher education. In the years since, the Press has become a publisher of international scope, issuing works in a wide range of fields. Our books present the results of original research conducted all across the United States and Latin America and in centers of learning throughout the world. These scholarly books contain important theories and discoveries and help to preserve the cultural heritage of the Americas.
The University of Texas Press has published more than 2,000 books over five decades. Currently a staff of 46, under the direction of Director David Hamrick, it brings out some 90 books and 11 journals annually.
