Seeking Authors/Editors for Books in American History and Social Sciences

Praeger Publishing, a leading independent academic publisher, is seeking authors for books on American history, American popular culture, American studies, and contemporary American issues. We are looking either for new book ideas from authors or to discuss in-house book ideas with potential authors. Praeger publishes books with an interest to a broad array of readers, from undergraduate students to interested laypersons, rather than narrow focused books of interest to only a small circle of scholars. Our books typically explore a historical theme, idea, or event (we publish very few biographies) with resonance for today. Alternatively, we publish books that examine pressing contemporary issues, often from a historical perspective. Finally, we are also looking for those scholars interested in editing reference works in any of the above-noted fields. If you are an interested scholar, please contact acquisitions editor James Ciment at
