What We Do


Our Philosophy

The people who work at Bedford/St. Martin’s spent many hours learning and teaching in their academic disciplines before they ever sat down at their Bedford desks. We know that editors who have taught are better at building books and media. English, History, Communication, Music, and College Success: We bring that same belief to each discipline in which we publish.


Our Books

Groundbreaking texts are based on changes in disciplines, in demographics, and in pedagogy. Books like A Writer’s Reference, A Speaker’s Guidebook, and the titles in the Bedford Series in History and Culture work — because they grow from where our disciplines are, where they’re going, and what they need.


Our eLearning

We create media to add value to your course, not to raise the price for students. Whether you want to use a little or a lot, we have an option for you. Documents, images, audio, e-books, online course spaces: We’ve got content for the classroom. You choose how you want it delivered.
