About the Press

Syracuse University Press


"I believe university presses are central to the vitality, intellectual rigor and prestige of research universities. They make it possible to establish ties with numerous other scholars outside one’s own university, and stay on top of the latest scholarship in the field. Just like librarians all those who contribute to book publishing are custodians of culture and should be appreciated as such. I have been involved with Syracuse University Press for almost two decades as an author, book series editor, and member of the editorial board and have benefited enormously from this affiliation."
—Mehrzad Boroujerdi, Professor and Chair of Political Science Department, Syracuse University

"University presses are a vital and dynamic member of the expanding publishing family. I have had the most pleasurable experience of having three of my books published by Syracuse University Press. Just a scan of their targeted audiences shows that these unique presses offer up a much needed banquet of tastes for the hungry reading public. SUP expertly handles everything from American Irish Studies to Judaic Literature to television and popular culture subjects. Their eagerness to publish and promote my regional New York State history books reveals a deep passion on behalf of the press in exposing their readers to the most varied, most eclectic audience possible. University presses are essential, creative and important."
—Chuck D’Imperio, author of Unknown Museums of Upstate New York: A Guide to 50 Treasures

"The truth matters. Facts matter. Serious scholarship matters. If you value these things, buy your next book from a university press. Presses, such as Syracuse University Press, demand documentation of sources, enforce a rigorous system of peer reviews, and undertake a painstaking process of editing a work before it ever sees the light of day. The end product is something of value; it’s an honest search for the truth that represents the author’s best effort to get the story right."
—Charles B. Kastner, author of The 1929 Bunion Derby

"Syracuse University Press has served as an incubator for new ideas and directions in scholarship. For me, Syracuse University Press staff were indeed my teachers over the years, instructing me at every stage of the publishing process—how to prepare a manuscript for submission; the need to secure images and permission letters early in the process; the way to structure a proper bibliography and organize an index; the vital role of a copyeditor and how to best proof a manuscript; the importance of working with a production staff in the choosing of book titles, jacket descriptions, and cover designs: and ways to better market and promote the final product once the book was published. University presses have in-house expertise and draw from their location on campuses of higher learning."
—Laurence M Hauptman, author of In the Shadow of Kinzua: The Seneca Nation of Indians since World War II

"The world is a better place because of Syracuse University Press and her university press siblings. The university presses venture where others will not, enriching the persnickety marketplace with unique books that are beautifully designed, impeccably produced and fanatically researched. Authors and readers alike owe these dedicated souls a great debt."
—Michael Doyle, author of Radical Chapters: Pacifist Bookseller Roy Kepler and the Paperback Revolution

"The Press has led the way into important realms of scholarly publication."
—David Tatham, Syracuse University, author of Winslow Homer in the Adirondacks

  • serving scholars and scholarship
  • promoting diverse cultural and intellectual expression

"In countries where Syracuse University may not otherwise have a high profile, the publications of the Press represent the university and lend it considerable prestige."
