Livonics Publishing is an independent publishing house specializing in the field of mental health and social sciences. Setup in 2017, we have signed on eminent authors and have books targeted at multiple audience segments like children's handbooks, reference material for university students, psycho-biographies, and advanced texts showcasing the latest research in the field of mental health. You can follow us on social media to keep up with our latest!
A new outlook on social sciences is needed to preserve and disseminate an account of Indian and global history and development as witnessed, examined and researched by eminent scholars. Publishing such work gains an urgency as there is a concerted effort to erase and rewrite India’s history - economic, political and social, to buttress a certain political agenda. Our electronic and print editions are meant not only to preserve, but also to disseminate these histories to specialist scholars and general readers around the world. Reaching outside the geographical confines and intellectual boundaries of borders and boundaries, Livonics Publishing is an un-erasure of the pyrophilic tendencies of modern-day Caesars.
