Our Imprints

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 Reference, The 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.

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 can make significant contributions to mathematics and science.

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.
