Celebrating 30 years publishing fine Australian books


Them + Us and our peer review process

tony-bennett2The prospect of receiving a manuscript which will transform a world scientific viewpoint is a publisher’s ultimate dream. When Danny Vendramini sent a draft of Them and Us I became excited from the very first chapter. My hunch that this work would transform our thinking about Neanderthals and humans was supported by a glowing reader’s report from an eminent scholar of anthropology and archaeology. It is a true honour to have the Kardoorair imprint on this work.

Kardoorair Press: Company History


une2Kardoorair Press was established 30 years ago by a group of external students of literature at the University of New England primarily as an outlet for writers based in the New England Region of New South Wales.

In 2000 Kardoorair was formalized as a trust with Anthony Bennett, Stephen Reading, Anne Gilbert and Tom Maxwell as directors. Today, it publishes a range of Australian books, including education, political, poetry, history, biography and academic works.

Kardoorair Press makes every effort to ensure the papers used in its books are made from trees that have been legally sourced from well-managed and credibly certified forests.

Most of our books are printed by UNEprint, established in 1970 to meet the printing needs of an ever enlarging campus, as well as the distance education students at the University of New England, Armidale.
