Columbia’s list in American politics and foreign relations publishes monographs and trade books of all methodologies and ideologies on the questions that animate contemporary political debate. We look for fresh arguments on political behavior and public opinion, policy, race and social issues, carceral studies, and US political history. The list in foreign affairs is moored by several strong series: the Council on Foreign Relations, the Nancy Bernkopf Tucker and Warren I. Cohen Series on American–East Asian Relations, and the Woodrow Wilson Center Series.

Social Work is a long established and distinguished list at Columbia University Press. We focus on graduate-level textbooks that advance the field and scholarly texts that explore innovative methods of addressing social problems. We particularly value works that focus on social problems, give voice to marginalized populations, consider emerging issues in the field, and use a lens of social justice. Core topics for the list include child welfare, mental health, and aging. Our series include Foundations of Social Work Knowledge and End-of-Life Care
