SCARECROW PRESS


Scarecrow Press is perhaps best-known for providing quality scholarly, general interest, and reference works for the patrons of Public, School, and Academic libraries, as well as professional books for the librarians that serve them. Whether it’s through Scarecrow’s historical dictionaries (of countries, religions, organizations, wars, movements, cities, ancient civilizations, arts, literature, politics, espionage, film, theater, sports, professions, and industries), or through its many books on music, film, literature, television, sports, and library & information science, readers have come to trust Scarecrow to deliver reliable and valuable books.
