About Yale University Press

Founded in 1908, Yale University Press has published vital scholarly works for the last 112 years, starting with The Beginnings of Gospel Story by Benjamin W. Bacon. The 1980s saw an expansion of the Press’ publications, as the Press added more commercial titles and

textbooks in the fields of Language, Law, Philosophy, Political Science, Religion, and Economics to the lists in order to reach a wider audience. Today, Yale University Press has a library of more than 8,000 published books and continues to grow.
