Auckland University Press is New Zealand’s leading scholarly publisher. From the histories of Judith Binney, Jamie Belich and Erik Olssen to the poems of Allen Curnow, C. K. Stead and Elizabeth Smither, from The Dictionary of New Zealand Biography to Nga Moteatea, from Keith Sinclair’s Walter Nash to Barry Gustafson’s Kiwi Keith, classic Auckland University Press books have changed how New Zealanders see themselves and their world.
Auckland University Press currently publishes around twenty-five books a year. With traditional strengths in history and politics, art and architecture, literature and poetry, Maori, Pacific and Asian Studies, the Press is now also developing lists in science, business and health. Auckland University Press books are widely recognised for excellence - in both 2008 and 2009 the Press had more finalists in the Montana Zealand Book Awards than any other publisher.
