About Cornell University Press


Founded in 1869, Cornell University Press was the very first university press in the United States. It has since become a major academic publisher, and today publishes over 100 titles a year in the humanities and social sciences. Cornell’s books in the life sciences and natural history, including field guides, are published under the Comstock Publishing Associates imprint. Books in labor and employment relations, the health care professions, and human resources appear under the ILR Press imprint.

The press publishes non-fiction titles and specializes in anthropology, Asian studies, biology, classical studies, history, business administration, literary criticism and theory, medieval history, natural history, New York City and State, politics, international relations, and sociology.

The press’s renowned authors include Richard Fortey, Francis Fukuyama, Barbara Kingsolver, Harold Bloom, Howard Zinn, Linus Pauling, and Donald Kagan.
