Once best known for publishing The Collected Writings of Walt Whitman
—regarded as the definitive series of his work—NYU Press has now published numerous award-winning scholarly works including Converge Culture
(2007) by Henry Jenkins
, The Rabbi's Wife
(2006) by Shuly Schwartz
, and the Encyclopedia of Jewish Life Before and During the Holocaust
It was spotlighted by the Huffington Post
in 2010, which described NYU Press as "consistently publish[ing] scholarly yet accessible books", and "ahead of the cultural curve—pushing literary trends—rather than behind it".
