Combined Academic represents North American University Press titles in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and now also the Asia Pacific region. Currently we are proud to work with 13 different University Presses.
This blog is about the power of books.
Better than anyone, we think writers understand books’ potential, and how books, as cauldrons for ideas, can change us, and our perspective on the world. At bookscombined.com we’re asking authors to write about the books that have had a significant impact on their lives – the good, the bad, and the ugly.
In addition, once a month we’re profiling the inspirational independent bookshops and booksellers we are privileged to work with. They’ve made books their life’s work, and each has a story to tell.
