Advancing Discovery

Now part of Springer Nature, the Palgrave imprint has an unbroken tradition of 170 years of independent academic publishing. We publish award-winning research which changes the world across the humanities, social sciences and business for academics, professionals and librarians.

While few Palgrave books are specifically designed as textbooks, very many are suitable as required reading or supplementary texts for academic courses. We encourage you to browse our titles and ask your librarian or delivery service about acquiring them, as we have state-of-the-art marketing and distribution around the globe.

Lecturer Support

For lecturers who do adopt Palgrave titles and put them on mandatory course reading lists, free lecturer copies are sometimes available as e-books. Lecturers are required to register online and to give additional information about their course, number of students, university or college, etc. Please note, however, that Springer Nature does not approve free copies for all books and reserves the right to limit the number of copies, whether in print or electronic, that any one person or institution may receive.
