Four Courts Press was founded in 1970 by Michael Adams as a small press. For many years he ran it in conjunction with his role as managing director at Irish Academic Press.
From 1992, Four Courts Press expanded rapidly from its theology base, first into Celtic and Medieval Studies and Ecclesiastical History, and then into Modern History, Art, Literature and Law.
Publishing proposals for academic books in all the areas mentioned are welcomed by the Press (see House Style guidelines below).
The Press publishes some 70 titles a year. At present there are over 500 titles in print. Our books are available worldwide, either directly via our website or through an extensive chain of bookstores, libraries, and book wholesalers.
All our books are peer reviewed. More information concerning this policy will be available shortly.
Four Courts Press is a company incorporated in Ireland with its registered office at 7 Malpas Street, near Dublin 's historic Blackpitts area.
