Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the Urban History Association.
Since we can’t be together at the conference, we’re bringing our book exhibit to you.
From virtually anywhere, you can browse our list of new and recent titles, chat with one of our acquisitions editors, and more.
Congratulations to our Book Award Winners!

Current events continue to bring new attention to subjects like police brutality, institutionalized racism, protests and activism, and more. These subjects are among the pillars of the UNC Press publishing program, and have cast new light on some of our newest books, and some of our classic bestselling titles.
Some of these books are highlighted in our Justice, Power, and Politics series.
You can also check out our full listing of new and classic books in African American Studies.
All of our books (in fact, our entire site) are available now at our 40 percent UHA conference discount. Plus if your order totals $75, domestic U.S. shipping is FREE! Just use promo code 01DAH40 at checkout.
Follow the links at the left for information on submitting a book proposal, ordering desk or examination copies (even free digital exam copies), classroom permissions, disability resources, and more. We’ve even created a handy FAQ document, with answers to the most-asked questions we get at exhibit booths.
Click on any book below to learn more. And, using our View Inside feature, you can leaf through the pages for a preview of each new book, just as if you were standing at our booth. Check it out on each book page.
