Our new African Studies catalogue collects together all our new, recent and forthcoming titles from University of Rochester Press and our James Currey imprint.
Many of the books listed are available as eBooks from Boydell & Brewer, and your usual suppliers. See here for a full list of our partners.

If you are planning to make your next book open access, please take a look at what we offer at our open access policy. We combine competitive pricing alongside the close attention and rigour that all our books receive. We look forward to your proposal.

Since so many of our paperbacks make ideal additions to course reading lists, we understand the importance of inspection copies. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected] or [email protected] in North America.
