New Publisher: Trans Pacific Press

17 Nov 2020 11:55:33



Eurospan is delighted to announce that Trans Pacific Press joined us on 1st October 2020 for distribution in the UK, continental Europe, the Middle East & North Africa, and Oceania.

Trans Pacific Press is the only academic publishing house that translates scholarly books originally published in Japanese into English and produces them for worldwide circulation. In social sciences and humanities, almost all local publishers in Japan solely publish works written in Japanese, while major international publishers tend to only consider manuscripts written and submitted in English, a situation which has long concealed Japanese scholarship from global debate. To address this dilemma, TPP has built a bridge between Japanese scholars and the outside world.

11 Nov 2020 09:10:08

University Press Week is here! For those that don’t know, this is an annual celebration of the positive impact that a global community of university presses has on every one of us; a focus on the vital role University Presses play, that consequently bring new perspectives, ideas, and voices to readers around the globe; and a nod to how these presses use peer review and rigorous editorial processes to ensure that their books are among the best in their fields.

In the strange year that is 2020, trustworthy publications, reliable sources, and freedom is speech is more important than ever, and we’re proud to be standing with our UP friends to celebrate their hard work and extend this important mission.

As a UK based marketing, sales and distribution agency, Eurospan is proud to partner with a prestigious portfolio of University Presses to represent their publications in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Oceania, and Latin America, and as part of University Press week, we’ll be taking a closer look at a handful of the titles that make up this year’s recommended reading list.

Demagogue for President by Jennifer R. Mercieca looks at Donald Trump's 2016 campaign speeches and other rhetoric, and how it seemed on the surface to be simplistic, repetitive, and disorganized to many. But as this book shows, his campaign strategy was anything but simple. Political communication expert Jennifer Mercieca shows how the Trump campaign expertly used the common rhetorical techniques of a demagogue.
Texas A&M University Press

From Here to Equality by William Darity Jr. & A. Kirsten Mullen makes a comprehensive case for economic reparations for US descendants of slavery.

The University of North Carolina Press

We Shall Overcome by Kathryn E. Delmez expands on a Frist Center for the Visual Arts exhibition to present a selection of approximately one hundred photographs that document an important period in Nashville's struggle for racial equality.
