One of the strengths of UNC Press is our commitment to publishing first-rate books about the region in which we live. From college hoops to environmental history, from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, from the coast to the hills, our books about the South educate and entertain readers within the region and beyond.

We’ve recently updated our Southern Gateways feature on the Press website to include new books from 2010 along with backlist favorites that belong on every southern bookshelf. You can view the print catalog in PDF format or browse by subject from our Southern Gateways page, where we’ve highlighted new selections in sports, history and culture, travel, and nature.

Gift-giving holidays will be here before you know it. Strike some things off your shopping list–or add a few gems to your own wish list. These books are available at bookstores everywhere.
