Agenda is an independent publisher of books on the economy for students and lecturers in institutions of education worldwide.

Its aim is to facilitate access to economic ideas for a readership that has traditionally found them forbidding and inaccessible, whether in the wider social sciences or in the public square, yet who nevertheless wish to gain a greater understanding of how the economy works.

As well as opening up the work of mainstream economics, Agenda’s program also represents the work of other traditions and methodologies, as well as more ethically- and historically-informed studies.

Their list ranges from textbooks (e.g. Everyday Economics, The History of Economics, An Economic History of Europe), short primers (e.g. The Economy: Key Ideas series), policy-focused books (e.g. TTIP and the New Politics of Trade, The Political Economy of Brexit) to edited collections and research monographs.

With many series initiatives underway –in political economy, economic geography, feminist economics, heterodox economics, regional studies, finance and the history of economic thought– Agenda look forward to seeing the publishing grow and mature into a list to rank alongside the best. A full list of their publications is available on their website.
