The McGill-Queen's University Press (MQUP) is a joint venture between McGill University in Montreal, Quebec and Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.

McGill-Queen's University Press publishes original peer-reviewed works in most areas of the social sciences and humanities. It currently has more than 2,800 books in print.[1] For more than twenty-five years, the publishing house has been under the direction of Executive Director Philip Cercone, a former director of Canada's Aid to Scholarly Publishing Programme, the governmental agency that funds scholarly books published in Canada. Under Cercone's guidance, the list has grown to the point where MQUP is generally recognized as Canada's leading academic publisher. One of its editors is the historian and author Donald Akenson.

Publications[edit]

Among the most well-known academics to have published with the press are Jacob Neusner, Margaret Somerville, Stéphane Dion, Charles Taylor, Bruce Trigger and Christl Verduyn. It also has a poetry list including such writers as Carmine Starnino, Mark Abley, Peter Dale Scott and Brian Bartlett. In recent years the press has also become known for contentious books on Canadian politics by Tom Flanagan among others. Some of its books are translated from the French.

McGill-Queen's has been awarded numerous prizes for the design of its books.

History[edit]

McGill-Queen's University Press began as McGill in 1961 and amalgamated with Queen's in 1969.[2]
