The UA Press invites book proposals from the authors of works—whether scholarly books or works of general interest—appropriate to its list of publications. (Browse one of the book catalogs to get a sense of the list of UA Press.)

The author should send a book proposal to the appropriate acquiring editor. It should include a letter of inquiry describing the subject of the book, the approach taken, the length of the manuscript, a table of contents, a sample chapter, the audience for the book, comparable books in the field, and the author's resume or vita.
