About 2/2: … Nation Books is one of the leading independent publishers of serious nonfiction in America.
Dedicated to continuing this country’s long tradition of progressive thought, our titles focus on current events and politics, international relations, the environment, corporate crime, religion, culture, and economics. Founded in 2000, Nation Books has become one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful imprints in independent publishing.
The goal of the imprint is to produce authoritative books by leading writers and thinkers that break new ground and shed light on current social and political issues. We publish established authors who are leaders in their area of expertise, but also endeavor to cultivate a new generation of emerging and talented journalists. With each of our books we aim to impact cultural and political discourse and to help affect positive social change.
The Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute is dedicated to improving the scope and overall quality of investigative reporting in the independent press and beyond. The Investigative Fund incubates and supports important investigative stories with the potential for social impact, particularly on issues that may be bypassed by the mainstream media. The Investigative Fund does this by providing reporters with editorial guidance, institutional support, and grants to cover the research costs associated with investigative journalism.
