Online Orders
We reserve the right not to accept any order.


Private customer orders placed through this website require payment by credit/debit card or through Paypal. The credit card details form in our order process is secure-server protected. This means that your credit card details are scrambled in transit, and then stored securely so that we are the only people who can access your information.

If you would prefer not to pay by credit card, there is the facility to print out your shopping cart and post/fax this to us. We accept payment by check (in US dollars, and drawn on a US bank account).  Please contact us for further details.

Cancellations, Returns & Refunds

All books purchased from Brookline Books may be returned within six months of the invoice date.  Books must be in a saleable condition, the current edition, and still available.  Superseded editions are not returnable 90 days after publication of a new edition. You must notify us via email or phone of your wish to cancel and return goods to us prior to sending the return. When returning goods please obtain proof of mailing or send via an insured method of shipping. We will issue a refund within 30 days of receiving the returned goods. We will not refund the cost of originally mailing the item to you, nor that incurred by you returning the item to us.

Damaged or faulty books may be returned for a replacement copy (where available) or a refund. We will refund any postage charges you incur in returning a damaged book to us. Please contact us before returning any book so we can advise a suitable method of delivery.  Such claims must be made within 14 days of receipt.

If you are considering adopting a book for your course, we will provide a digital copy at no cost. If a digital copy is not available, you may purchase a print copy at a 50% discount, plus a $6.00 shipping & handling fee per book. If you have adopted one of our titles as required reading for your course, we will send you a complimentary desk copy once we have confirmed your course adoption with your university bookstore. Please send all requests to casemate@casematepublishers.com specifying your institution, intended course, projected enrollment and semester.
