About Westview Press

Forty years later, Westview Press continues to publish scholarly titles and high-quality undergraduate and graduate level textbooks in core social science disciplines. With books developed, written, and edited with the needs of serious nonfiction readers, professors, and students in mind, Westview Press honors its long history of publishing “books that matter.”
