"Publishers of Original Thinking."

Though now more than 20 years old, Intellect Books has made recent inroads to redefining how academic books are made and sold. Intellect publishers works in a broad range, all with scholarly verve to spare...the more uncategorizable the better. One of their proud claims is that they take chances on publishing bold, original thinking, regardless of pre-existing readership.

Their books primarily fall into Arts & Design, Film Studies, Education, Performance & Theatre, and Media & Culture. Some upcoming titles include Pride and Panic: Russian Imagination of the West in Post-Soviet film by Yana Hashamova (April 2007), Film, Drama, and the Break-Up of Britain by Steve Blandford (April 2007), and Futures Past: Thirty Years of Arts in Computing edited by Anna Bentkowska-Kafel, Trish Cashen, and Hazel Gardiner (July 2007). Intellect also publishes journals as widely concerned as the International Journal of Contemporary Iraqi Studies and the European Journal of American Culture.

Their design (cover, layout, general visual demeanor) templates are first-rate, offering tantalizing, abstract images that please both the eye and the bookshelf. One of their primary marketing devices, as well as services to the literate public, is their free journal Intellect Quarterly. Though used primarily as a launchpad for their recent books, IQ also showcases useful articles, summaries, and revealing interviews about Intellect's publishing philosophy. Issue 5 is now available.
