Dundurn Press Limited was established in 1972 to bring Canadian history and biography to a general readership. Politics, history and biography, were part of the original mandate but quickly expanded to include literary and art criticism, and large illustrated art books. In the 1990's Dundurn acquired three respected Canadian publishing houses: Hounslow Press, Simon & Pierre, and Boardwalk Books. These companies broadened Dundurn's editorial mandate to include popular nonfiction, literary fiction, and young adult books. Over the years, Dundurn Group authors and titles have won many awards including the Amazon/Books in Canada Best First Novel Award, several nominations for the Governor General's Award for non-fiction, the Canada Council Translation Prize (now the Governor General's Award for Translation) several Arthur Ellis Awards from the Crime Writers of Canada for best first mystery novels, as well as many other awards. Dundurn titles are frequently on the best seller lists. Dundurn's editorial mandate to publish quality Canadian books in a wide variety of genres for domestic and international markets is being successfully maintained and expanded.
Specifically interested in books with these subjects or themes: popular non-fiction, scholarship, history, biography, art, young adult fiction.
