From the North Atlantic Books guidelines:

Niche areas dominate our publishing. We are most interested in holistic and alternative health, bodywork, somatics, healing practices, raw food, healthy eating and nutrition, sustainability, ecology, spiritual practices, new consciousness, and martial arts. We also publish some social sciences, lifestyle, and political titles, but these generally have to overlap with one of our other categories. We prefer books that focus on a single practice or tradition, rather than general overviews of a broad subject area. For our martial arts imprint, we are most interested in documentations of specific lineages, translations of historical documents, and in–depth examinations of specific techniques and practices.
