About Scarecrow Press

Scarecrow Press was purchased in 1995 by University Press of America and moved from its Metuchen, New Jersey, headquarters to Lanham, Maryland, where it is now a member of the Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group.

Scarecrow Press is known for their scholarly bibliographies, historical dictionaries (of countries, religions, organizations, wars, movements, cities, and, now, ancient civilizations), library science monographs, and reference works in the humanities, particularly music and film. They are broadening their list to include textbooks in library and information science, several new series that address the technological frontiers of this profession, handbooks and reference tools for librarians serving children and youth, and a greater scope of materials in music.

In addition to their traditional library market, they sell worldwide to academics and individuals who have a particular interest in their subject material. They sell rights to book clubs, anthologies, magazines, and electronic publishers, and translations of Scarecrow books have appeared in many languages. They offer books to the trade with an agency plan and they now have their own trade imprint — distributed by a nationwide sales force through National Book Network.
