From its modest beginnings in 1947, University of Hawai‘i Press has grown from a largely regional press to one of the most respected publishers of Asian and Pacific studies titles in the world. We publish 80–100 new books and a dozen journals annually in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences and keep close to 1,500 book titles in print.

In addition to publishing books and journals under our own imprint, we market and distribute a range of titles from University of Hawai‘i departments and scholarly and educational publishers in the United States, England, Denmark, Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere. Our international sales representation program, East-West Export Books, sells books throughout Asia and the Pacific for UH Press and fifty-five North American university presses and scholarly publishers.

The UH Press publishing program reflects the cultural milieu of Hawai‘i, the academic strengths of the University of Hawai‘i, and our commitment to increasing the flow of scholarship across the Pacific and Asia.
