About Keynote Books

Keynote … books in a higher register

Keynote Books is the brainchild of Paul E. Stepansky, Ph.D., historian, editor, and managing director of The Analytic Press, Inc. from 1984-2006. The imprint is dedicated to general-interest titles in medicine and society, including memoirs of noteworthy clinicians, researchers, and other “quiet heroes” whose lives intersect with history and serve to illuminate the ever-changing cultural landscape of American health care.

Keynote Books is a tiny venture with grand aspirations. It seeks to fly in the face of mind-numbing corporatized publishing with a handful of titles that are publication-worthy in the strong, traditional sense of this term. It follows that Keynote is not interested in hot-button topics. We are satisfied with titles that are original in conception, lucidly and accessibly written, pleasurable to read, and illuminating of health-related issues that concern all of us.

The United States Marine Corp is looking for a few good men and women. Keynote Books is looking for a few good ideas that will materialize into a few edifying books worth the trees that made their printing possible.
