Review Our Publications

Reviewing UH Press BOOKS

The University of Hawaiʻi Press provides complimentary digital editions of books to members of the media (including journals, newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and online media) who will use the material for book reviews or in conjunction with relevant written articles, newscasts, or radio segments. Appropriate attribution to UH Press must accompany the final product.

Please send requests to the Marketing Department Product Managers to receive a digital edition for review. Requests for physical copies will be considered by UH Press but will only be provided at the discretion of the Marketing Department Product Manager that receives the request.

The following information should be included with the request:

Full name and title

Publication/media name

Phone number, email, and web address

Email your request for a review copy to our marketing and publicity staff.

For titles focused on Hawaiʻi, Pacific, and Asian American studies, send requests to Carol Abe . All other titles should be requested from Steve Hirashima. If needed, your request will be forwarded to the correct publicist.
