Our Environment and Sustainability book publishing programme seeks to push the frontiers of scholarship while simultaneously offering prescriptive and programmatic advice to policymakers and practitioners around the world. We have launched four series below with one more in the work. Each has an excellent editorial board featuring scholars, practitioners and business experts eager to link theory and practice), and look forward to publishing research monographs, professional and major reference works, upper-level textbooks and general interest titles.


Another project related to the Anthem Environment and Sustainability programme is Anthem EnviroExperts Review. Through this online micro-review site, Anthem Press seeks to build a community of practice involving scientists, policy analysts and activists committed to creating a clearer and deeper understanding of how ecological systems – at every level – operate, and how they have been damaged by unsustainable development. We publish a new set of short reviews every two to three months of important books in the environmental field, broadly defined.
