McGill–Queen's University Press publishes original peer-reviewed works in most areas of the social sciences and humanities. It currently has more than 2,500 books in print.[2] For more than twenty-five years, the publishing house has been under the direction of executive director Philip Cercone, a former director of Canada's Awards to Scholarly Publishing Program, the governmental agency that funds scholarly books published in Canada. Under Cercone's guidance, the list has grown to the point where MQUP is sometimes claimed to be Canada's leading academic publisher. For many years one of its senior editors was the historian and author Donald Akenson.
