Cambridge University Press is the world's oldest publishing house (since 1534) and the second-largest university press in the world. In recent years, it has also published pseudoscientific material. Although it is ostensibly a respectable academic publisher, it routinely publishes material espousing racialism and hereditarianism, some of it written by known white nationalists and pseudoscientists, with extensive citations to "research" bankrolled by the white supremacist[1][2] Pioneer Fund. Notable publications by Cambridge University Press include the following:

The publication of this material by Cambridge University Press, as well as similar material published by Oxford University Press,Wikipedia is sometimes brought up by racialists to argue that their ideas are real science.[24] (Do you believe that?)
