The University of Nebraska Press has acquired leading historical non-fiction publishing house Potomac Books, which will continue to operate under the guidance of publisher Sam Dorrance from the company's offices in Virginia.
Famous for its volumes on military history, Potomac Books has expanded its editorial portfolio considerably since separating from parent company Brassey's Ltd in 1999, and currently publishes around 50 new titles each year on subjects such as US foreign policy, global and national affairs and general history.
The University of Nebraska Press currently publishes around 160 new and reprint titles annually under its two imprints, and is also known for its scholarly journals and general interest books on topics including American history, indigenous culture and sports history.
Donna Sheer, director of the University of Nebraska Press, commented: "Potomac Books has an excellent reputation for producing fine books in fields that fit perfectly with University of Nebraska Press’s catalogue."
