Pluto Press "has a proud history of publishing the very best in progressive, critical thinking across politics and the social sciences. We are an independent company based in London, with a sales and marketing office in the United States and distribution rights throughout the world.

"Pluto Press has always had a radical political agenda. Founded in 1969 as a publishing arm of International Socialism, the forerunner of the Socialist Workers Party in the UK, in 1979 we broke with this political affiliation and became truly independent. Today, we represent authors from a wide range of progressive political viewpoints. With over 550 titles in print, Pluto Press is one of the world's leading radical book publishers. We publish more than 70 new titles each year...

"Pluto Press also works closely with several small independent American publishers. We have a long-standing and fruitful partnership with South End Press, sharing rights on many titles, and we distribute the South End Press list in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Following the success of this relationship, in 2003 we were delighted to become the distributor for two more successful, independent publishing houses: Autonomedia, and Paradigm Publishers." [1]
