The publication of scholarly books on Mesoamerica is one of the major activities of the Institute. IMS publishes two series of scholarly books on Mesoamerica: IMS Monographs and Studies on Culture and Society. Our books are edited and produced in-house, printed and bound at a commercial press. IMS also periodically publishes Occasional Publications and Papers. These are usually project or site reports that are produced in-house as well. The only difference is that authors submitting occasional publications and papers are responsible for their own editing, design, and layout.

Most other books, including current publications, can also be ordered through Amazon.com. Please keep in mind that if Amazon.com lists a book as out of print, it is still likely available through IMS. Contact us for availability if you have trouble finding a title you want. If you have questions about ordering, please feel free to contact us.
