For more than thirty years, The New Press has published books that facilitate social change, enrich public discourse, and defend democratic values.

For more than thirty years, The New Press has been a leading publisher of diverse narratives and books that provide cutting-edge analyses and critical perspectives. As a not-for-profit, public interest publisher, it has been our mission to provide books on topics and by authors traditionally ignored by mainstream publishers—books that facilitate social change, enrich public discourse, and defend democratic values, including from historically disenfranchised voices and on underrepresented subjects such as race, economic inequality, LGBTQ+ communities, criminal justice, and environmental reform.

The New Press amplifies progressive voices for a more inclusive, just, and equitable world. As a nonprofit public-interest publisher, we leverage books, diverse voices, and media engagement to facilitate social change, enrich public discourse, and defend democratic values:
