Since 1954, the University of Michigan Press has maintained a commitment to keeping a select group of worthy titles in print for use by students and scholars. As a result, the Ann Arbor Paperbacks series is currently home to some of the most influential and hotly-debated writings in Western intellectual history, in addition to titles of exceptional importance to teaching and research in certain newly emerging fields of scholarly inquiry.

As we begin the new millennium, Ann Arbor Paperbacks will continue to expand to include reprinted titles which occupy places of distinction in their respective fields. The University of Michigan Press is particularly interested in hearing from college and university faculty members about titles which, though currently out of print, remain of central importance to teaching and learning in the various disciplines. Our hope is to continue to provide students and teachers with inexpensive editions of foundational texts for use both in and out of the college and university classroom.
