The digital revolution is changing publishing on a daily basis and we at Island Press are committed to providing important and timely information in the forms and formats our readers find useful. We have converted much of our backlist into the most popular digital formats and we are actively creating content in digital-only formats alongside our traditional print programs. Electronic editions are included on the book description pages.


ISLAND PRESS E-ssentials


Island Press Essentials are timely, concise electronic publications that provide information on important and emerging environmental topics. Written by respected authorities in a wide range of fields—from sustainable design to ecological restoration to climate change to toxics—these short, original pieces tackle today’s most pressing issues. Readable in a couple of hours, they complement our list of longer, printed books. Like all Island Press publications, the pieces in the Essentials Program aim to inform and inspire students, professionals, and general readers interested in issues relating to the environment. They are promoted extensively online and through in-person outreach.
