Publisher of Nonfiction Literature especially social studies. Notable for its excellent ''Daily Life Through History'' series. These are a series about how different groups of people in history [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin lived their daily lives]]. They are not textbooks as such but contain as much or more information as any textbook and are pleasantly written and easily digestible. Most suitable for schooling older children and teenagers and a teacher, private tutor, or homeschooling parent will find them extremely useful. Also suitable for an adult seeking to augment his knowledge in a reasonably painless way. Useful to writers as quick sources of history.

Besides the Daily Lives, Greenwood Press publishes a number of other works in social studies. Including, interestingly, a series of books about historical cooking.
