"I have always believed that books make a difference. I’m proud to be part of UC Press, where we see the impact of our publishing program every day as our authors contribute knowledge and original perspectives to the most important public and scholarly conversations of our time. At UC Press, we're excited to work with scholars and thinkers who deepen our knowledge of the world and who aim to make a difference on critical issues facing the country and the world. As a proud graduate of the UC system, I am delighted to publish books that reflect the progressive values of the world's leading public research university. Working with authors to launch their books and connect their ideas to a broad public is about as gratifying as it gets.

Each of our acquiring editors brings passion, commitment, and curiosity to their program. The editors acquire and publish award-winning books by senior scholars and emerging voices from a wide range of disciplines. I am honored to work with this group of committed, talented editors, and to help amplify the voices of our author community."
