Business, Management and Economics

Our books are for academic, professional and general readers who want fresh perspectives on the economy, the future of work and organizations, and the relationship between business and wider society.  

We publish high-quality academic books, upper-level student texts and general interest titles. Recent highlights have included Woke CapitalismRedeeming Leadership, and Life After COVID-19Many of our books are published on an individual basis, but the list is home to a number of new book series including Organizations and Activism, Alternatives to Capitalism in the 21st Century and Feminist Perspectives on Work and Organizationall of which are edited by leading scholars from the field. We are also proud to support Futures of Work, a space for radical critiques of the changing world of work.

We’re expanding our programme and are always happy to hear from prospective authors. In business and management we are especially interested in organization studies, work and employment (including HRM and the sociology of work), and business ethics. In economics we support a variety of approaches, and we welcome proposals from areas such as the history of economic thought as well as boundary subjects like sociology and law. Across our programme we are engaged with Bristol’s global social challenges agenda. If you are interested in speaking with our editor, please see the contact details for Ellen Pearce below.

Meet the Editor

Ellen Pearce, Commissioning Editor

I joined Bristol University Press in 2022 from Edward Elgar Publishing. It's great to be working for a not-for-profit publisher with a strong social mission, publishing high quality books that have true impact. As the editor for business management and economics, I enjoy working on books that can make a difference, for academics, students and general readers. Supporting a project from an initial idea to a published book is a real privilege.

Our business, management and economics list seeks to unsettle the status quo, offering fresh perspectives on the future of work and organisations, the economy and the relationship between business and wider society for academic, professional and general readers.
