Rowman & Littlefield partner with Policy Network

Academic and professional publisher Rowman & Littlefield International has partnered with London-based thinktank Policy Network.

The first title from the partnership is a book bringing together experts, business leaders, entrepreneurs and politicians with ideas for how Britain can thrive in a global context edited by the Shadow Business Secretary and MP for Streatham, Chuka Umunna. The book, titled Owning the Future: How Britain Can Make it in a Fast-Changing World, will be launched this month.

Oliver Gadsby, chief executive of Rowman & Littlefield International, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Policy Network and we look forward to a number of important publications which will emerge from our collaboration over the coming years.”

He added: “We will be publishing the Policy Network titles in print and in multiple e-book formats. Our rapid production processes will see each title launched quickly, and our sales and marketing reach, in Europe, North America and beyond, will ensure that the books reach a wide audience.”

Michael McTernan, acting director of Policy Network, said: “It is a vital time for contributing ideas to the political and policymaking world. Policy Network are delighted to enter this agreement with Rowman and Littlefield International as we step-up our efforts to feature the best progressive thinking on the major social and economic challenges of the 21st century.”

Rowman & Littlefield International was established in London in 2013, in partnership with the well-established US independent publishing group, Rowman & Littlefield.

Policy Network is a thinktank and international political network that seeks to promote strategic thinking on progressive solutions to the political, economic and social challenges of the 21st century, impacting upon policy debates in the UK, the rest of Europe and the wider world.
