About meHurst is an independently owned non-fiction publisher, specialising in books on global affairs, founded by the late Christopher Hurst (1929-2007) in 1969. Michael Dwyer (michael@hurstpub.co.uk) joined the company in 1986 and took it over following Christopher's death in April 2007.

We publish between twenty-five and forty books a year, co-publishing them simultaneously in North America with university presses and trade publishers. Our most fruitful long-term collaborator is Columbia University Press, New York, with which Hurst has a long association that is going from strength to strength.

We also co-publish our books simultaneously in other parts of the world, e.g. in South Asia, Southern and Eastern Africa, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.

About my libraryHurst titles cover the following areas:
General Interest, Politics, Religion, Current Affairs, History, Middle East Studies, Islamic Studies, South Asian Studies, African Studies.

Your review of American Neoconservativism that got a flag looks like it belongs in the "Book Description" field to me. And I don't think that LT or thingamabrarians would take exception to publisher-generated descriptions.
PS Please note that I have no personal animosity to your books. I have, indeed, added a positive published review for Holy Ignorance.
Welcome to LibraryThing.
However, I think most users, like me, consider it bad form for authors and publishers to post reviews their own books here. You can use the "Published Reviews" section to link to favourable reviews, I at least wouldn't hold that against you.
