Request Review Copies

Duke University Press is pleased to consider requests for review copies of our publications from magazines, journals, and other print venues, as well as blogs, podcasts, and radio and television programs. We do not provide free review copies for scholarly research, nor are we able to donate copies of our books to libraries. If you are a professor interested in obtaining a desk or exam copy of one of our publications, please click the "Request Desk or Exam Copy" button on a publication's product page.

Please allow two to three weeks for delivery of review copies to the US and UK. For other locations, please allow four to six weeks. Electronic copies will be provided within 3 business days. If you have an urgent request, please note the date required when submitting your request. If a title is not yet published, we will send it as soon as possible upon publication.

If we are unfamiliar with your media outlet, we may contact you for further information before fulfilling your request.

To request author contact information or high-resolution cover and other art, to send copies of reviews, and for all other questions, please email
