How books matter

This blog exists because we think big ideas matter. What’s more, we think that books provide one of the best opportunities for developing big ideas. As our first blogger, Sverker Finnström, says, writing is part of a struggle for interpretation, a struggle that gives real life to books. At Combined Academic we are privileged to work with North American University Presses, who are in the fortunate position of being able to publish authors because they have something important to say.

With this blog, we want to help make our Presses’ authors and ideas as widely known as possible. We want to engage an online reading community who are inspired by serious writing, and who share our commitment to deep, creative and critical thinking. In collaboration with our Presses, we’re asking authors to write about the books that have played an important part in their lives, be it personally, politically, or intellectually.
