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 ( 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.
