Bilingual Review Press (BRP) is an American publishing house specialising in the publication of scholarly and literary works by Hispanic and Latino American authors and researchers. It was founded in 1973 as the publisher of "The Bilingual Review/La revista bilingüe", a new academic and literary journal with a focus on Spanish-English bilingualism, bilingual studies and Hispanic literature that was first issued in 1974. Under the imprint name Bilingual Press/Editorial Bilingüe the press also publishes and distributes book titles by or about Hispanic and Latin American authors, covering literary fiction, poetry as well as non-fiction titles relating to Chicano and Latin American studies. Bilingual Press publishes from 8 to 10 titles annually, with an accumulated back catalogue of more than 150 titles under the imprint in both English and Spanish as well as some bilingual editions. [NACCS (2006)] The publisher is also a distributor of related titles from other presses, as of|2008|lc=yes numbering over a thousand releases.

Bilingual Review Press is based in Tempe, Arizona, at Arizona State University (ASU). It operates as an autonomous sub-entity of the University's Hispanic Research Center (HRC), which provides support services to the publishing enterprise. [College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (n.d.)] The press is maintained through a number of federal and private funding grants, including the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as returns on its publication sales. [Hernández-G. (2006). See also cite web|title=About Bilingual Review Press |url=|work=Bilingual Review Press website|publisher=Arizona State University|accessdate=2008-09-29]

The director and general editor of BRP since its foundation is Dr. Gary D. Keller, a noted academic and scholar of bilingualism and Chicano/Chicana studies. As of|2008 Dr. Keller holds a tenured appointment as Regents' Professor of Spanish and Chicano Studies at ASU, and has been director of the Hispanic Research Center since 1997. [NACCS (2006)]

BRP was established in 1973 as a publishing entity for "The Bilingual Review/La revista bilingüe", a new journal on Hispanic American studies and literature founded by Keller with support from scholarly grants. It was initially based out of the Department of Romance Languages at City College of New York (CCNY), where Keller had just obtained tenure. In 1975 it moved operations to York College at CUNY along with Keller, and then later to the State University of New York at Binghamton. Since 1986 Bilingual Review Press has been based on campus at Arizona State, following Keller's transfer to take up a position at the newly formed Hispanic Research Center. [Hernández-G. (2006), NACCS (2006)]

Bilingual Review Press has published novels, poetry and essay contributions from both upcoming and established Hispanic and Latin American authors, including Virgil Suárez, Rafael C. Castillo, Alfred Arteaga, Sandra Cisneros and Rolando Hinojosa. Through both its own imprints and distribution of works first issued from other presses, BRP has also kept in circulation previous works of classic Latin American literature, reissuing lapsed or out-of-print titles by literary luminaries such as Carlos Fuentes, Isabelle Allende and Jorge Luis Borges. [Hernández-G. (2006). See also cite web|title=Authors listing |url=|work=Bilingual Review Press website|publisher=Arizona State University|accessdate=2008-09-29]

Under the recently established imprint Clásicos Chicanos/Chicano Classics BRP publishes specific and notable works of Chicano/Chicana literature. [Hernández-G. (2006)] BRP is also the sole distributive agency for Latin American Literary Review Press publications, a publishing series established in 1980 devoted to English translations, literary criticism, and bilingual creative writing on Latin American literature.
