Our major subject areas include African, Asian, Ireland, Jewish and Holocaust, Middle East, Russian and East European, gender studies, film and media, military history, music, paleontology, philosophy, and religion. We also feature an extensive trade publishing program including the Quarry Books imprint and distribution of many other books and products including Red Lightning Books and WTIU.

How does the Press support itself?

Our program is financed primarily by income from sales, and support from Indiana University and by generous gifts and grants from customers like you.
