The Continuum International Publishing Group is a fast-growing publisher of books, with its headquarters in London and offices in New York and Harrisburg in the USA- and partners all over the world.
Created in 1999 with the merger of the Cassell academic and religious lists and The Continuum Publishing Company in New York we are a new company, but with deep roots in publishing. Our team has worked for some of the biggest and best names in the publishing industry and beyond. They bring a wealth of experience and are helping us to create our own unique culture.
We are an academic, religious and trade publisher, producing over 500 books a year, written by authors who are acknowledged experts in their chosen fields. We have an active backlist of over 6,000 titles.
We publish for the market in those fields in which we feel we can make the most valid contribution to learning, scholarship and research. Our publishing programme is focussed on the humanities, in the fields of philosophy, film and music, literature, education, linguistics, theology and biblical studies.
Our growth has been rapid and has come both organically and through acquisition. Many of the companies that we have acquired are market leaders in their field. Our success is due to a rigid adherence to quality in everything that we do: in the quality of the authors we sign, in the quality of the books we publish, in the way we bring them to market, and most importantly the quality of our staff.
Our reach is truly international, with Continuum books being bought in virtually every country in the world. Our core business is with the bookseller- both the independent and chain- and we provide retailer support for our titles using all aspects of the marketing mix.
