Lynne Rienner Publishers is an independent scholarly and textbook publishing firm based in Boulder, CO. It was founded in 1984 and remains one of the few independent publishers in the US.

It publishes primarily in the fields of international studies and comparative world politics, while also covering U.S. politics, sociology, Black politics, criminology, and the translation of relevant works into English. Some of its translations include books by notable authors, such as Naguib Mahfouz, Ghassan Kanafani, Maryse Condé, Derek Walcott, and Tawfiq al-Hakim.[2]

It is considered a highly respected publisher, with a publishing program that includes the FirstForumPress (a specialized scholarly research forum that focuses on important work that might be overlooked due to market constraints) and the Kumarian Press (focusing on poverty, underdevelopment, war, human rights abuses, and nonprofit management).[3]
