Reaktion Books

Reaktion Books was founded in 1985 in Edinburgh and moved to London in 1987. Reaktion originally focused on the fields of art, architecture and design – its first book was Ian Hamilton Finlay: A Visual Primer by Yves Abrioux. In recent years Reaktion’s list has broadened substantially, and now encompasses a wide range of subjects including animal studies, Asian art and culture, biography, cultural studies, current events, fashion, film, food history, geography, general history, music, philosophy, photography, politics, sports history and travel writing. Reaktion produces around 80 new titles each year, and as of June 2015 has about 700 titles in print.
