Brill Book Archive
As one of the oldest publishers in the Humanities, Brill has served research communities since its foundation in 1683. We strongly believe that the Humanities, Social Sciences and International Law are areas of scholarship vital for addressing today’s global challenges. To make our rich content available online, we are dedicated to digitizing our backlist book program.
With support from the Dutch National Library, Leiden University Library, and the Peace Palace Library in sourcing some titles, we are now adding a large set of Brill titles in digital format:
The Brill Book Archive Part 2 includes more than 11,000 book titles published before the year 2000, across disciplines such as Asian Studies, Biblical Studies, Classical Studies, History, Language & Linguistics, Literature and Cultural Studies, Middle East and Islamic Studies, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Theology, International Law, Social Sciences, and Biology.
The Brill Book Archive Part 1 includes 3,800 book titles published between 2000 and 2006, across disciplines such as Asian Studies, Biblical Studies, Classical Studies, History, Language & Linguistics, Literature and Cultural Studies, Middle East and Islamic Studies, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Theology, International Law, Social Sciences, and Biology.
