Routledge


Routledge

Routledge is a publisher of non-fiction academic books and journals. It was acquired in 1997 by, and is thus now an imprint of, the Taylor & Francis Group, which is a sub-division of Informa PLC, a company based in the United Kingdom with offices worldwide. A majority of Routledge's books are based in the humanities and social sciences and all are academic. In 2005 the international affairs titles of another of the Taylor and Francis Group's imprints, Europa Publications, were added to the Routledge catalogue, including the "Europa World Year Book", "International Who's Who", the Regional Surveys Series, the "Europa World of Learning" and Europa World online.

History

As a name in Camden publishing, it originates in 1836, when George Routledge (1812-1888) founded a firm with W. H. Warne. George Routledge and Co. was set up in 1851 with Frederick Warne, becoming Routledge, Warne & Routledge in 1858, and George Routledge and Sons when Warne left. After refinancing in 1902, the company took over J. C. Nimmo Ltd in 1903. In 1912 an amalgamation with Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co. created Routledge and Kegan Paul Ltd., a major London publishing house. Taylor & Francis bought Routledge in 1998.

People

The famous English publisher Frederic Warburg was a commissioning editor at Routledge in the early twentieth century.

Encyclopedia

Taylor and Francis closed down the Routledge encyclopedia division in 2006. Some of its publications were:

* Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy by Edward Craig (1998) in 10 volumes, but now online
* Encyclopedia of Ethics by Lawrence C. Becker and Charlotte B. Becker (2002) in three volumes.
* Routledge Encyclopedia of International Political Economy
* Encyclopedia of Paleontology by Ronald Singer (1987)

Machzor

Routledge & Kegan Paul Ltd for many years published the series of Jewish Festival prayer books "Service of the Synagogue" sanctioned by Chief Rabbi Hermann Adler for use in British synagogues. The series are generally known amongst Jews of the British Commonwealth as "the Routledge Machzor".
