Ann Arbor Paperbacks (Series)

Beginning in 1954, the University of Michigan Press under the direction of legendary publisher Fred Wieck began its long commitment to keeping a select group of worthy titles in print for use by students and scholars. As a result, the Ann Arbor Paperbacks series became home to some of the most influential and hotly-debated writings in Western intellectual history, in addition to titles of exceptional importance to teaching and research in certain newly emerging fields of scholarly inquiry. While the series is not currently active, University of Michigan Press remains keenly interested in hearing from faculty members about titles which, though currently out of print, remain of central importance to teaching and learning in the various disciplines. Our hope is to continue to provide students and teachers with inexpensive editions of foundational texts for use both in and out of the college and university classroom.
