Harvard University Press

Two names from the back catalogue are enough to put Harvard University Press in natural science publishing’s first division: EO Wilson and Steven Jay Gould.

Biologist and conservationist EO Wilson’s On Human Nature won the 1979 Pulitzer Prize (a prize he also won with The Ants in 1990, co-authored with Bert Holldobler) and is considered to be an effort to complete the Darwinian revolution. While paleontologist and evolutionary biologist Steven Jay Gould’s The Structure of Evolutionary Theory, from 2002, is a late masterpiece by one of the most widely read science writers of our times.

Biology and evolution feature strongly in Harvard University Press’ output, along with ocean science, Earth science, and general titles on the natural world.

Harvard University Press, established in 1913, is one of the six biggest university presses in the United States, publishing more than 200 new titles a year.

Among Harvard University Press’ imprints is the Leob Classics Library, which includes Theophrastus’ Enquiry into Plants, one of the most important botanical works to have survived from antiquity. And Aristotle’s History of Animals, a classical analysis of 500 animal species, including Homo sapiens.
