For more than 75 years, the University of South Carolina Press has published books that tell compelling stories, present innovative scholarship and inspire conversations. Many of the more specialized books cost more to publish than their sales will support.

With more than 1,300 books available in print and digital formats, and publishing approximately 40 new books annually, UofSC Press advances the mission and visibility of the university while serving the state of South Carolina.
Our signature publications include Blessed Experiences: Genuinely Southern, Proudly Black by South Carolina Congressman James E. Clyburn; Greek Revival: Cooking for Life by Interim First Lady Patricia Moore-Pastides; Gullah Images by Charleston artist Jonathan Green; Invisible No More: The African American Experience at the University of South Carolina by graduates Robert Greene and Tyler Perry; Only Wanna Be with You: The Inside Story of Hootie & the Blowfish by Tim Sommer; South Carolina: A History, by university historian Walter Edgar; Southern Perspectives on the Queer Movement: Committed to Home edited by Columbia writer and activist Sheila R.
