How to Order

All prices on our website are subject to change without notice. Some titles listed in this electronic catalog may not be available and/or may be backordered. Unless otherwise noted, binding is hardcover. Prices are U.S. list only.

All UNC Press titles are available through bookstores and online vendors. We encourage you to purchase books from your local bookseller. If the book you need is not in stock locally, place a special order with your bookseller. Many special orders can be filled within a week or so via regional distribution centers. A special order is likely to be more efficient than you expected. And, collectively, they are a fine way to support local booksellers.
