The University of Washington Press is a proud participant in the American Association of University Press's Books for Understanding. A free, easy-to-use resource to help scholars and general readers find books on current events, Books for Understanding is constantly being updated with new material. New bibliographies are compiled when a major news story breaks or public debate heats up.
This program highlights one of the greatest values of a university press: to publish top research and scholarship in all fields regardless of immediate commercial potential.
