Rooted in the Great Plains, the University of Nebraska Press has established itself as the largest and most diversified publisher located between Chicago and California. It has published more than 4,000 books and more than 30 journals of influential and enduring value. What started as a one-person operation has grown into a press that has earned an international reputation for publishing works in Native studies, history, anthropology, American studies, sports, cultural criticism, fiction, fiction in translation, creative nonfiction and poetry.
UNP’s partnership with the Jewish Publication Society has placed an emphasis on books in Jewish studies and Bible studies. The acquisition of Potomac Books has expanded UNP’s subject matter to include national and world affairs and more widespread coverage of military history.
