The University of Arizona Press, founded in 1959 as a department of the University of Arizona, is a nonprofit publisher of scholarly and regional books. As a delegate of the University of Arizona to the larger world, the Press publishes the work of scholars wherever they may be, concentrating upon scholarship that reflects the special strengths of the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and Northern Arizona University.


The University of Arizona Press publishes about fifty-five books annually and has more than 1,000 books in print. These include scholarly titles in American Indian studies, anthropology, archaeology, environmental studies, geography, Chicano studies, history, Latin American studies, and the space sciences.


The UA Press also publishes general interest books on Arizona and the Southwest borderlands. In addition, the Press publishes books of personal essays, such as Nancy Mairs's Plaintext and two series in literature: Sun Tracks: An American Indian Literary Series and Camino del Sol: A Chicana/o Literary Series.


Many UA Press books have been translated into foreign languages including Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. UA Press books are printed by commercial printers, typically located out of state, which specialize in producing short-run books. All UA Press books are printed on acid-free, archival quality paper.
