Home  About Us

Founded in 1958, M.E. Sharpe is a privately held publisher of books and journals in the social sciences and humanities, including titles in economics, business, political science, management, public administration, and history. We also publish both original works and translations in Asian and East European studies.

In addition to textbooks, handbooks, and other academic titles, we publish under the Sharpe Reference imprint single and multi-volume reference works designed to meet the needs of students and researchers from high school through college.


In 2009, we launched Sharpe Online Reference (SOLR), our digital reference platform, and the Sharpe e-text center (ETC), to meet the ever-increasing demand for quality resources in electronic format.

M.E. Sharpe's highly regarded periodicals program includes print and electronic journals in economics, business, public administration, information technology, mental health, and sociology, along with numerous translation journals in our Asian and East European series.
