Founded in 2000, Nation Books has become a leading voice in American independent publishing. The imprint’s mission is to produce authoritative books that break new ground and shed light on current social and political issues. We publish established authors who are leaders in their area of expertise, and endeavor to cultivate a new generation of emerging and talented writers. With each of our books we aim to positively affect cultural and political discourse. Nation Books is a project of The Nation Institute, a nonprofit media center established to strengthening the independent press and advancing social justice and civil rights. The Nation Institute is home to a dynamic range of programs: the award-winning Investigative Fund, which supports ground-breaking investigative journalism; the widely read and syndicated website TomDispatch; the Victor S. Navasky Internship Program in conjunction with the Nation magazine; and Journalism Fellowships that support up to 25 high-profile reporters every year.
