- Asian Studies

This collection focuses largely on studies of China, North Korea, South Korea, and Japan. With titles from Lexington Books, Rowman & Littlefield, and Rowman & Littlefield International, selection is intended for a research audience ranging from undergraduate to post-graduate.
- Education Leadership & Administration
This collection combines Rowman & Littlefield's strong educational leadership titles for principals with our educational administration titles, many co-published though partnerships with the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) and the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO), to create a cohesive leadership resource for principals, administrators, and those training to take on those roles. These top-notch professional development resources are critical to develop new school leaders and to keep current school leadership abreast of new tools and procedures to help their schools excel even when faced with new challenges.

The Library and Information Science collection is specifically designed to serve the professional development needs of librarians working in every area of academic librarianship. Whether you're working in instruction, electronic resource management, staff development, marketing and outreach, makerspaces, digital creation, or management, there's valuable, current guidance written by and for librarians in this collection.
- Political Communication
Analyzes how communication and media affect political attitudes and behaviors, providing insights into the dynamics that move the hearts and policies of nations.
- Political Theory & Philosophy
This multidisciplinary collection of political science and philosophy titles sets the groundwork for studies in political theory or political philosophy, exploring how the theory and philosophy affect or reflect the political realities of the world.
- Security and Intelligence
Today, more than ever, security has become the predominant issue for citizens and policy makers. We are concerned not only with homeland security to keep people safe from terrorists, but also with national security to protect our borders, and international security to promote peace building and development. Rowman & Littlefield's mission is to educate and help students, researchers, and professionals keep abreast of new developments in the fields of security, terrorism, and intelligence studies. Included within this collection are the titles of our Security and Professional Intelligence Education Series (SPIES)--books designed for individuals studying for careers in intelligence as well as members of the public who wish to know how intelligence work is conducted
- Social Movements & Resistance
Social movements and acts of resistance are a central part of today's politically turbulent and changing world, but often neglected or misunderstood by media commentary as well as experts in other fields. In an age when struggles over climate change, women's rights, austerity politics, racism, warfare and surveillance are central to the future of our societies, we urgently need to understand global social movements. This collection offers students, researchers and activists with the most up-to-date literature in the field, providing in-depth analysis of key events from the American civil rights movement, to Iran's Green Movement and the Arab uprising.
- Teacher Development
This collection is designed for teachers and teacher-in-training who want resources to help develop their classroom skills, from classroom management to teaching strategies to communication. The titles within can help teachers in all settings, from formal classrooms to casual workshops, primary school to adult education.
