Publisher Information

Oliver Press


At The Oliver Press we view history as much more than a collection of facts and dates. While these nuts and bolts from the past are certainly important, we believe that people and the events they shaped are truly the bricks and mortar of history. That's why our titles focus on people, on the individuals whose thoughts and actions influenced the lives we lead today. We offer six curriculum-based series: Profiles: Collective biographies of men and women whose lives are woven together by common historical threads; Great Decisions: Discussions that put students in the shoes of leaders; Innovators: Advances in technology told through the stories of the people who made them; Shaping America: Collective biographies that chronicle the early settlement of our country; Business Builders: Stories of enterprising individuals who built businesses in new fields; In the Cabinet: Examinations of the successes and failures of notable presidential advisors. In addition, we are pleased to introduce our first series of Clara House books for younger readers: How It Happens: Full-color, behind-the-scenes looks at how popular products are made and how everyday processes work. Your satisfaction with our books is 100% guaranteed. Authors interested in writing for the Oliver Press: click here for writers' guidelines.

Specifically interested in books with these subjects or themes: non-fiction for young adults, history, biography, science.
