The University of Hawai`i Press supports the mission of the university through the publication of books and journals of exceptional merit. It strives to advance knowledge through the dissemination of scholarship—new information, interpretations, methods of analysis—with a primary focus on Asian, Pacific, Hawaiian, Asian American, and global studies. It also serves the public interest by providing high-quality books and resource materials of educational value on topics related to Hawai’i’s people, culture, and natural environment. Through its publications the Press seeks to stimulate public debate and educate both within and outside the classroom.
From its modest beginnings in 1947, University of Hawai‘i Press has grown from a largely regional press to one of the most respected publishers of Asian and Pacific studies titles in the world. We publish about 70 new books and 20 journals annually in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences and keep more than 1,300 book titles in print.
In addition to publishing books and journals under our own imprint, we market and distribute a range of titles from University of Hawai‘i departments and scholarly and educational publishers in the United States, England, Denmark, Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere. Our international sales representation program, East-West Export Books, sells books throughout Asia and the Pacific for UH Press and fifty-five North American university presses and scholarly publishers.
