Publishing with De Gruyter exceeded my hopes and expectations in ways for which I will be forever grateful. From content to design to timing, pricing, and distribution, editors and staff were marvellously and consistently attentive to large objectives and small details alike. As an author, I have never felt my work is so well cared for as with De Gruyter. Under gracious and expert editorial direction, from first enquiries through to production and beyond, a book that meant the world to me found a home in a world of readers.

Knowing De Gruyter as a highly esteemed publisher of many books that I have made crucial use of in my research, I was very excited when I first had the chance to work with them. And the experience of being an editor and author in the hands of De Gruyter’s professional organization and its helpful, friendly and inspiring staff was truly beyond my expectations! Luckily, I have already embarked on the next project with De Gruyter and I am greatly looking forward to the process.
