About meBeacon Press is an independent publisher of serious non-fiction and fiction. Our books often change the way readers think about fundamental issues; they promote such values as freedom of speech and thought; diversity, religious pluralism, and anti-racism; and respect for diversity in all areas of life.
About my libraryFounded in 1854, Beacon has published many ground-breaking classics, including James Baldwin's Notes of a Native Son, Herbert Marcuse's One-Dimensional Man, Jean Baker Miller's Toward a New Psychology of Women, and Mary Daly's Gyn/Ecology. In 1971, Beacon printed the Senator Gravel Edition of The Pentagon Papers in five volumes. This groundbreaking achievement marked the first time those papers had appeared in book form. Beacon is also the publisher of Marian Wright Edelman's best-selling book, The Measure of Our Success: A Letter to My Children and Yours, and Cornel West's acclaimed Race Matters. Recent publications include Michael Patrick MacDonald's All Souls: A Family Story from Southie, Rashid Khalidi's Resurrecting Empire, and four new titles by Pulitzer-prize winning poet Mary Oliver (Blue Iris; New and Selected Poems, Volume Two; Owls and Other Fantasies; and Why I Wake Early.
