Palgrave is an imprint of Macmillan, a company with deep historic roots, publishing its first books in 1843. In 1861 The Golden Treasury of the Best Songs & Lyrical Poems in the English Language was published, edited by Francis Turner Palgrave, from whom Palgrave would later take its name. In 1970, Palgrave, under the imprint of Macmillan Press, published the first edition of one of its current bestselling titles, Engineering Mathematics by K. A. Stroud, followed two years later by the economics text Growth and Development by Thirlwall. The Mastering series launched in 1982 andMastering Modern World History by Lowe is still a world-wide success today. Some of our key business titles were first published in the 1990s – Bratton and Gold's Human Resource Management is now going into its sixth edition. Reflecting the changing Higher Education environment, we launched our first study skills title in 1999, Cottrell's The Study Skills Handbook, helping many thousands of students to succeed in their studies through the discovery and development of their own personal learning styles. It is the UK's bestselling textbook in any subject. 

At the turn of the millennium, the Palgrave brand was born and brought with it new ideas and technology to kick start our digital publishing. Most Palgrave titles are now published as eBooks as well as in print format, and some of our key titles include video, audio and interactive elements. We are market leaders in Politics, Study Skills and Social Work, with a great breadth and depth of publishing in Psychology, Business, Economics, and the Humanities, key titles in Law, Modern Languages and Engineering, and a popular British Film Institute imprint. 

Bedford St Martin's

In 1981, Charles Christensen and Joan Feinberg founded an imprint of St. Martin's Press called Bedford Books and started work on The Bedford Reader. Today, Bedford St. Martin's is publishing across the disciplines of English, History, Communication, Music, and College Success. Books like A Writer's ReferenceThe Bedford Series in History and Culture, and A Speaker's Guidebook work because they grow from where disciplines are, where they're going, and what they need. 


Springer is a leading global scientific, technical and medical portfolio, providing researchers in academia, scientific institutions and corporate R&D departments with quality content through innovative information, products and services. 

Worth Publishers

In 1966, Robert Worth and his colleagues created Worth Publishers, a company dedicated to publishing a highly selective list of college textbooks, each individually developed to meet the needs of students and teachers in the Social Sciences. Worth is currently proud to be the home of the world's leading introductory psychology series by David Myers and 2008 Nobel laureate Paul Krugman's introductory economics texts, among other stellar texts. 

W.H Freeman

In 1946, William Freeman founded W. H. Freeman and Company and published Linus Pauling's General Chemistry, which revolutionized the chemistry curriculum and established the prototype for a Freeman text. W.H. Freeman quickly became a publishing house where leading researchers could make significant contributions to mathematics and science and remains so today.
