About Cambridge University Press

Cambridge University Press is the publishing business of the University of Cambridge, one of the world’s leading research institutions. It is the oldest publisher and printer in the world, having been operating continuously since 1584.

We aim to further, through publication and printing, the University of Cambridge’s own objective of advancing learning, knowledge and research worldwide.


Today, this transformative mission is realized through our commitment to innovation and enterprise, placing us at the cutting-edge of electronic delivery in a world that looks increasingly to digital content and networked access not only to books and journals but to a range of other pedagogic services.


The academic textbook programme at Cambridge continues our tradition of publishing excellence into teaching and self-study materials for undergraduate and postgraduate students at universities worldwide.

Textbooks are available across our full range of subject areas and levels, ranging from the market-leading New Cambridge Shakespeare editions to cutting edge Physics and Engineering.
