The Louisiana State University Press is a nonprofit book publisher and an academic unit of Louisiana State University. Founded in 1935, the press publishes scholarly, general interest, and regional books as part of the university’s mission to disseminate knowledge and culture. A member of the Association of American University Presses, LSU Press is one of the oldest and largest university presses in the southern United States. As an integral part of LSU, the Press receives some state funding, but it is 90 percent self-supporting thanks to revenue from book sales, subsidiary rights, licenses, grants, and private contributions.

LSU Press publishes about eighty new books a year and has a backlist of about 1,000 titles. The Press’s primary focus includes the U.S. South and Gulf South regions; the American Civil War and World War II; poetry; political philosophy and communications; music, particularly jazz; geography; and environmental studies.
