Tim Sullivan began his book publishing career in the production department at Princeton University Press. He moved into acquisitions as a junior economics editor and eventually became senior editor for economics and sociology. After leaving PUP, he worked as an editor at Portfolio and Sentinel, the business and politics imprints at Penguin, and then at Basic Books, where he published broadly in serious nonfiction. Before joining UC Press, Tim worked at Harvard Business Review, serving as editorial director for HBR Press and as a senior editor for Harvard Business Review magazine and HBR.org, as well as a member of the senior management team for the HBR Group. He is the coauthor of two books with Ray Fisman, The Org: The Underlying Logic of the Office and The Inner Lives of Markets. He has a BA and MA in history from the University of Vermont and studied world history at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Established in 1893 as a modest publisher of monographs by University of California faculty, UC Press emerged as a world-class university press in the early 1950s. Today we are one of the six largest university publishers in the United States, and the only one associated with a public institution. As the nonprofit publishing arm of the University of California system, UC Press functions as a unit of the Office of the President and is not associated with any one campus. In disseminating scholarship of enduring value to diverse audiences, we support the UC mandates for research, teaching, and public service.
UC Press publishes bold, forward-thinking titles in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, all of which undergo a vigorous peer review process.
With a global circulation, UC Press journals span the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, with key subject areas that include history, the environment, public health, literature & criticism, film & media, music, religion, and sociology.
UC Press Foundation
As a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the UC Press Foundation raises funds to support UC Press and its vital role as an independent, progressive publisher. Donations from individuals and institutions enable UC Press to publish nearly 200 new books and over four dozen multi-issue journals annually, maintain thousands of backlist titles in print, and offer the finest scholarship in digital formats.
