Westview Press publishes books that are appropriate for course adoption at the college and university level, and the acquisitions staff currently seeks to expand Westview’s offerings in the following disciplines:

  • African Studies
  • Asian Studies
  • International Relations
  • Latin American Studies
  • Middle East Studies
  • Political Science
  • Sociology

We would be happy to consider proposals for core textbooks, topical books, and edited volumes in the disciplines listed above. Successful proposals envision books that fulfill an identifiable course need, are written by academics and professors actively teaching the course in which the proposed book would be used, and compare and contrast favorably against books currently used in that course.

Westview Press does not publish scholarly monographs; elementary, middle, or high school-level textbooks; or fiction, memoirs, or other books intended for general readers. Although Westview has historically published books in physics, anthropology, art, and other areas, we are not actively seeking submissions outside the disciplines listed above.

Download the Westview_Proposal_Guidelines, and submit complete proposals to westview.bookproposal@perseusbooks.com. Due to the volume of submissions, we regret that we cannot respond individually to each proposal. If your proposal fits Westview’s publishing program, we will contact you to discuss the next steps in the process.

Thank you for considering Westview Press as a possible publisher for your work.
