AUC Press and I.B.Tauris link up to create Middle East focus
The AUC Press and I.B.Tauris, the prominent, independent publishing house, have joined forces in response to ongoing interest in Middle East current events and to capitalize on the rapidly developing economies of the region.
From 1 September I.B.Tauris will handle sales and distribution for all AUC Press publications worldwide (excluding North America and Egypt). In addition, a raft of joint publishing on Middle East current affairs from both companies is slated for 2014.
Jonathan McDonnell, Managing Director of I.B.Tauris, said, “I.B.Tauris carrying the AUC Press list means we will have one of the largest offerings on the history, politics, art, and culture of all the countries of the Middle East: we become a one-stop shop for anyone with an interest in the region.”
Nigel Fletcher-Jones, Director of AUC Press, said, “With I.B.Tauris we could not have found a better partner – either to carry our list internationally or to work with on new publishing that explores the changing political landscape of the Middle East.”
