Stanford University Press
Just one year after the university was founded in 1891, the first work with the imprint "Stanford" appeared. The name "Stanford University Press" was first found on a book in 1895. In 1917 the university acquired the printing company and expanded it into a publishing house by 1925. Since 1999 the publishing house has been part of the university library.
According to its own information, the publisher publishes around 130 books a year, with the specialist focus on the humanities and social sciences. The publisher's authors include marine biologist Richard Ellis and philosopher Daniel Boyarin . The linguist Joseph Greenberg published his late work here, including his influential Language in the Americas in 1987 . The Polish scientist Andrzej Walicki received the 1998 Balzan Prize for History for his Slavic cultural history, the English version of which was published by Stanford University Press .
The publisher is a member of the Association of American University Presses and the Association of American Publishers .
