Publisher Information

Scarecrow Press, Inc.


Scarecrow Press was purchased in 1995 by University Press of America and moved from its Metuchen, New Jersey, headquarters to Lanham, Maryland, where it is now a member of the Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group. We are known for our scholarly bibliographies, historical dictionaries (of countries, religions, organizations, wars, movements, cities, and, now, ancient civilizations), library science monographs, and reference works in the humanities, particularly music and film. We are broadening our list to include textbooks in library and information science, several new series that address the technological frontiers of this profession, handbooks and reference tools for librarians serving children and youth, and a greater scope of materials in music. In addition to our traditional library market, we sell worldwide to academics and individuals who have a particular interest in our subject material. We sell rights to book clubs, anthologies, magazines, and electronic publishers, and translations of Scarecrow books have appeared in many languages. We offer books to the trade with an agency plan (address inquiries to Lita Orner, Marketing Department), and we now have our own trade imprint distributed by a nationwide sales force through National Book Network.

Specifically interested in books with these subjects or themes: non -fiction books and education resources for young adults, parents, teachers and medical professionals.
