Allen & Unwin (Australia)

Allen & Unwin is Australia's leading independent publisher and has been voted "Publisher of the Year" ten times including the inaugural award in 1992 and eight times since 2000.

We publish around 250 new titles each year including literary and commercial fiction, a broad range of general non fiction, academic and professional titles and books for children and young adults. Our imprints include Allen & Unwin, Arena, Crows Nest and Inspired Living.

Brief history
Allen & Unwin commenced publishing in Australia in 1976 as part of the UK company George Allen & Unwin Ltd established in 1914. In July 1990, following the sale of the UK company, Allen & Unwin's Australian directors effected a management buy-out and the company became fully independent, owning the Allen & Unwin imprint throughout the world.
