he mission of Gordian Knot Books is to publish quality nonfiction anthologies and monographs that give readers the information and insight they need to understand and formulate solutions to social, legal, medical, and technical-scientific problems.

Gordian Knot Books is especially interested in publishing works about intricate problems that have the potential to disrupt society without apparent solutions on their own terms, i.e., they represent conundrums, such as same-sex marriage, abortion, and assisted suicide, among many other potentially explosive “Gordian knots” of modern life.
