Congressman Raskin will be honored in New York City on November 9, 2021, at The New Press Social Justice Awards

We’re pleased to announce that Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD), the constitutional scholar, activist, and lead impeachment manager in the House of Representatives, will receive a New Press Social Justice Award for upholding democratic norms and the rule of law in the House’s prosecution of Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial for inciting the January 6 insurrection.

The New Press is happy to share our Fall 2021 catalog, which includes books to be published between September 2021 and February 2022. The pandemic exposed systemic problems in our criminal justice system, our politics, our economy, and our culture at large, while it opened up conversations about racism, justice, and equality. The books coming out in our Fall season illuminate these issues and more, looking back at what we can learn from history, taking stock of where we are at now, and looking forward to a better future.

The New Press is proud to support an innovative book donation concept, the brainchild of Alec Karakatsanis, author of Usual Cruelty: The Complicity of Lawyers in the Criminal Injustice System.

The New Press relies heavily on the help of its paid interns, treating them in many respects the way assistants are treated at other publishing houses and nonprofits. This means far greater exposure to interesting work than is normally afforded interns; it also calls for a degree of responsibility that is significantly greater than at most internships. Our New York office is large and efficient enough to offer a wide spectrum of experience, but small and casual enough for you to form intimate and lasting bonds with the staff.
