University of London Press

Originally founded in 1910 and operating as the Athlone Press between 1949 and 1979, the press boasted an impressive publishing programme featuring notable thinkers of the day. The University of London Press inherits and builds on that rich publishing tradition, disseminating distinctive scholarship at the forefront of the humanities.
