University of Alberta Press publishes works by established and emerging Canadian and international authors whose scholarship enlightens, engages, challenges, and provokes. We focus on books for scholars and other interested readers concerned with prairie, mountain, and circumpolar histories and cultures; urban issues; gender, class, and race studies; First Nations, Métis, and Inuit studies; Canadian politics; literary and cultural studies; environmental studies; and energy/resource extraction.
