Awards and Reviews

NYU Press has award-winning lists in sociology, law, cultural and American studies, religion, American history, anthropology, politics, criminology, media and communication, literary studies, and psychology. In the last year, we won the Rachel Carson Award (from the Society for the Social Studies of Science), the Michael J. Hindelang Book Award (from the American Society of Criminology), an LGBT Studies Award from the Lambda Literary Foundation, and a National Jewish Book Award from the Jewish Book Council.

NYU Press titles win awards in Latin American Studies, Asian American Studies, Jewish Studies, Black Studies, and Media Studies. They are reviewed in both scholarly journals and in trade publications, such as The New York Times, the New York Review of Books, the New York Post, and, this season, in Elle Magazine.
