Marion Berghahn, DPhil, PhD, MPhil Publisher and Editor-in-Chief for Books
Member of New York Academy of Science

Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute
Born and raised in Hamburg, Germany, Marion studied at the universities of Hamburg, Paris and Freiburg where she received a DPhil in American Studies, Romance Languages and Philosophy. In 1969, she moved to England where she received an MPhil in Social Anthropology from the University of Cambridge, followed by a PhD in Sociology from the University of Warwick. These subjects, together with history, later on formed the basis of her scholarly publishing program.

In 1988, she moved to the US but retained an office and home in Oxford, and has been commuting across the Atlantic ever since. General publishing matters should be directed to her attention:
