AMS and MAA Announce AMS Acquisition of MAA Book Program

PROVIDENCE, RI - The American Mathematical Society and the
Mathematical Association of America announced September 29 an
agreement for the AMS to acquire the MAA's book publishing program.
The high-quality mathematics titles and textbooks developed and
edited by MAA Press will now be published as an imprint of the AMS
Book Program. This agreement includes all existing MAA Press books,
as well as a renewable license to continue to publish new books under
the MAA Press imprint.

"The MAA Press titles are a wonderful complement to the AMS's
existing list, expanding it into the realm of undergraduate and
popular mathematics. The AMS will use its wide international
distribution network to bring these titles, and future MAA Press
imprint titles, to the attention of mathematicians around the world,"
said Robert Harington, Associate Executive Director for Publishing at
the AMS.

"We look forward to the continuation of the MAA Press tradition of
high-quality mathematics exposition and innovative textbooks. The
agreement with AMS will allow us to expand the audience for the
excellent books for which MAA Press is known," said Michael Pearson,
Executive Director of the Mathematical Association of America.

The AMS will now publish new titles under the MAA Press imprint, and
MAA Senior Acquisitions Editor Steven Kennedy will join the AMS

our reach to new audiences, help us better fulfill our mission to
support mathematical scholarship, and expand our many ongoing
collaborations with MAA," said Catherine Roberts, Executive Director
of the AMS.

MAA Press titles will be available alongside AMS books at the AMS
Bookstore ( and at AMS exhibits at mathematics
meetings by the end of this year. MAA members will continue to enjoy
discounts on MAA Press titles, and will now receive discounts on AMS
books, as well. AMS members will get similar discounts on both AMS
and MAA titles.
