Back Up Books Human Rights Press
Back Up is a publishing house that gives authors from developing countries with important books on human rights access to publication. There are many talented authors with crucial messages that can affect their nation that have little chance of getting their voice heard. We offer these authors the opportunity to publish their book. We look for books that will focus world attention on populations that are presently undergoing oppression. With the internet books can be sent electronically by authors who are not free to leave their country.
