Hackett Custom Publishing

Hackett Publishing has been carefully growing its list of high quality and affordable textbooks for the humanities and social sciences for 45 years. Our works, whether by way of our comprehensive anthologies, or our acclaimed single editions of core texts, have become mainstays of many college courses. In addition, with the purchase of the Focus list in 2014, we expanded into publishing in modern language instruction.

For instructors, we now offer the option of mining the Hackett list to create custom editions of Hackett content tailored to your course needs. The feasibility of such projects depends on the course enrollment and the size and complexity of the custom text. Hackett has also worked with school departments to produce annual collections of student writing as well as customized books that incorporate school and department specific information along with Hackett content. Recent projects include a customized edition of Gordon Harvey's Writing with Sources for Harvard University students, an edition of G. M. A. Grube's translation of Plato's Meno for St. John's College with a custom cover and introduction, a collection of student writings for Western New England University, and a custom edition of the Spanish language textbook El cine documental that included only the first four chapters for the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
