Zeta Books is an international publishing house in the Humanities. Its focus is on quality scholarly content in a broad range of areas. Our values are: quality, creativity, scholarship, depth and breadth, cosmopolitanism, and vision. We are committed to be as competitive as possible on both the academic and non-academic publishing markets and on working with authors, editors, and customers from as wide as possible geographical and intellectual distributions and traditions for the progress of knowledge.

We are keen on quickly adapting to the most recent, dynamic developments in the modern electronic publishing techniques, as well as nostalgic and conservative with respect to the continuing Gutenberg era of traditional publishing techniques. We publish in several languages and are open to all cultural traditions.

The members of our editorial teams come from all academic areas: scholars with specific backgrounds in anthropology, sociology, history, philosophy, history of art, translation studies, theology, etc. They provide a careful examination and selection of the Zeta Books publications.

Zeta Books has been publishing several book series so far and has also been editing 6 academic journals. We are keen on seeing these numbers and corresponding covered areas gradually expanding, but always with an eye on quality, rather than quantity.
