University Press of Kansas

The University Press of Kansas publishes scholarly and trade books in a wide array of topics, including American political and legal history, Native American and Indigenous studies, military history and intelligence studies, environmental history, American studies and culture, Western and Midwestern history, and Kansas and regional studies. Kansas is also the home of the Rethinking Careers, Rethinking Academia series, which explores graduate education and post-academic/alternative-academic careers.

As part of our mission to publish works that contribute to important scholarly and public debates, we welcome proposal and manuscript submissions that foster inclusivity inside and outside of the academy, shed new light on well-known subjects, and amplify marginalized voices from the past and present.
