Transaction Publishers Imprints
Launched in Chicago as an independent social science publisher in the early 1960s, Aldine Publishers was a cutting-edge publisher of major figures and trends in the fields of sociology, anthropology, and economics. Over time, Aldine refined and extended its editorial stream to include other fields of research such as social work and welfare, political science, sociobiology, physical anthropology, and public policy. In the 1970s, Aldine was a subsidiary of Walter de Gruyter, Inc., publishing books as well as the distinguished journal Human Nature. Over this period Aldine published approximately 700 titles, nearly all of which have been brought back to print. On July 1, 2004, Transaction Publishers acquired Aldine.
