Publishing with a Purpose

Economics and Society

Our new Economics and Society list includes research monographs and edited collections, student texts and books aimed at general readers.

The list will publish work across all fields of economics, as well as books which sit at the boundaries between economics and other disciplines. We are particularly interested in work that addresses the global social challenges of the 21st century.

We are actively commissioning new titles in the following areas:

  • political economy
  • economic history
  • development
  • public economics
  • economic geography
  • the history of economic thought, and the philosophy of economics
  • behavioural and experimental economics
  • labour economics
  • environment and sustainability
  • and economic sociology and anthropology

If you are interested in writing for us, please see the Commissioning Editor information below.

Meet the Editor

Paul Stevens, Senior Commissioning Editor

I began my career at Cambridge University Press and have worked in a variety of roles since then, most recently as editor for psychology and linguistics at Palgrave Macmillan.

I enjoy working with authors to develop their ideas, and I’m excited to be working for a new press that champions interdisciplinarity and emerging areas of research.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal to our Economics and Society list, please contact me at paul.stevens@bristol.ac.uk or visit our information for authors page to download our proposal guidelines.
