The MIT Press is the only university press in the United States whose list is based in science
and technology. This does not mean that science and engineering are all we publish, but it does mean that we are
committed to the edges and frontiers of the world -- to exploring new fields and new modes of inquiry. (For a
time we described our publishing program as chasing "The Moving Frontier," but we've moved beyond even that.) We
publish about 200 new books a year and over 40 journals. We are a major publishing presence in fields as diverse
as architecture, social theory, economics, cognitive science, and computational science, and we have a long-term
commitment to both design excellence and the efficient and creative use of new technologies. Our goal is to
create books and journals that are challenging, creative, attractive, and yet affordable to individual readers.
