Praeger Publishing ( is seeking authors with ideas for books on American history, the social sciences (pertaining to the United States), and the study of American popular culture.  At Praeger, we publish books on critical aspects of American history, as well as on pertinent contemporary American social issues--from politics to the law to environment to economics and everything in between. We aim for books that appeal to an array of readers--undergraduates, scholars, interested lay readers--rather than a narrow circle of scholars in a given field. We aim for books written in accessible, jargon-free prose, on broad topics, pressing contemporary issues, and major themes in American history.

If you have an idea for a book, we'd love to hear about it. Or, if you would like to learn more about some of the books we are trying to develop--and for which we are seeking authors or editors--write to acquisitions editor James Ciment at
