Over nearly 40 years the Policy Studies Organization has published more than 300 books in partnership with a number of leading companies, including Macmillan, Lexington, and Gale. We have started our own imprint and book-publishing program, Westphalia Press. Our goal is to develop a general list that will include original titles as well as reprints of antiquarian books of interest in an entire range of subjects. We believe there is much valuable scholarship out there that deserves to be shared more widely and effectively, useful in teaching and research.

Westphalia Press is part of the Policy Studies Organization’s longtime mission to disseminate scholarship. Finding scarce titles that deserve re-printing for renewed use is a major focus. All Westphalia books are the subject of ongoing research as to their authors and bibliography and Westphalia has secured professors to develop supplementary material to be furnished online for each title. Our intention is that by providing both paper and kindle versions along with supplementary essays we can encourage use of Westphalia in teaching.

Westphalia Press is multidisciplinary in scope, and publishes titles on a diversity of topics including history, art, and literature, as well as politics and government.
