Baylor University Press is the academic book publishing arm of Baylor University. Established in 1897, Baylor University Press publishes forty new academic titles each year. The Press publishes research for researchers, tools for teachers, and textbooks for students, and all Press publications enjoy rigorous peer-review and project development. The list focuses upon religion, featuring books about Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Press publications also investigate the relationship between religion and politics, sociology, anthropology, literature, philosophy, history, and culture. An active member of the Association of University Presses and the Association of American Publishers, Baylor University Press joins with academic presses worldwide in the belief that ideas matter, that publishing is more than disseminating information, and that books are sustained acts of wisdom.
