New Society Publishers has been a leader in sustainable publishing for over 40 years.

We are an activist, solutions-oriented publisher focused on bringing you tools for a world of change. New Society Publishers has published over 600 books, available as both print and ebooks. We care deeply about both what we publish and how  we do business and so the same thinker and doer approach permeates our in-house work and the books themselves. A certified B Corporation, we print on 100% post-consumer recycled paper, we are carbon neutral, and we print primarily in North America.

We take a unique two-pronged publishing approach to helping build a positive, regenerative future with books for "thinkers" that tackle the problems and prospects facing humanity and books for "doers" that provide a toolkit of hands-on solutions for people looking to make positive change on the ground.

Books that engage with the big ideas, systems, and structures of our times come from leading critical thinkers and cut across resiliency, climate change, economics, agriculture and the food system, education and parenting, peace studies, racism, society and community, and the built environment.

Practical how-to books from acknowledged experts cover mediation, progressive leadership, community building, low-impact living, business and investment, health, permaculture, farming, gardening and modern homesteading, including our Urban Homestead Hacks series for urbanites, renewable energy, and sustainable and natural building, including our Sustainable Building Essentials Series.
