James Lorimer & Company Ltd. has been publishing non-fiction books on Canadian social and political issues since the early 1970s, with an attention to subjects that were being silenced in public discussions. Some of the company's first books included a groundbreaking report from First Nations reserves across Canada by a renowned journalist, and several others that challenged the destructive policies of city politicians and city planners working with land developers that were destroying downtowns and neighborhoods. Lorimer still publishes under this mandate today, and has expanded to subjects including military history, economics, education, gender studies, history, native studies, political science, public policy, sociology, and urban studies written by experts but with an appeal to the general reader.
