How To Order

You can purchase New Society Publishers’ books through your favorite local independent bookseller, all major online or brick-and-mortar book retailers, or directly from us. We regret that we can no longer ship individual orders overseas due to prohibitive shipping charges, but if you are located outside of North America, our titles are distributed internationally by Perseus Group Worldwide. Check with your local retailer, or email to inquire about title availability.

For bookstores and libraries, New Society Publishers is distributed to the book trade by Consortium Book Sales & Distribution in the U.S. and by University of Toronto Press (UTP) in Canada. Please click here for detailed ordering information.
