About Us

I.B.Tauris Books

I.B.Tauris is an independent publishing house that has pioneered a distinctive approach to the publication of both general non-fiction and new scholarly writing in the humanities and social sciences. We aim to publish books that appeal to academics, area specialists, students and researchers as well as to a broad cross-section of general readers.

Founded in London in 1983, we now publish more than 300 new books internationally every year and keep approximately 3,000 books available in either hardcover, paperback or digital editions – or in a combination of these formats.  The majority of our publishing output is available in digital format through libraries and collections worldwide. A large and fast-growing proportion of our list is also available as consumer digital editions, including Kindle editions from Amazon.

I.B.Tauris has long been recognised as one of the leading publishers on the Middle East and the Islamic World and has a major presence in Classics and Ancient History, History, Geography and Social Sciences, Politics and International Relations, Philosophy, Religion, Film and Visual Culture, and Fine Art including the internationally recognised Fine Art imprint Philip Wilson Publishers. We also publish the popular Tauris Parke Paperbacks imprint specialising in history, travel and biography.

With offices in London, New York and Melbourne – and linked warehouses on 4 continents – we offer comprehensive  international distribution. Our network of agents and representatives around the world can provide information on our publications and availability in your country – see our Distribution section for full details.
