The Basic Books Group is dedicated to making the world smarter by publishing works of serious non-fiction by expert authors. The group includes Basic Books, of which Seal Press is a subsidiary imprint, and PublicAffairs, of which Bold Type Books is a subsidiary imprint. Since its founding in 1950, Basic Books has shaped public debate by publishing award-winning books in history, science, politics, biography, and psychology. Seal Press, founded in 1976, publishes enduring works of feminist non-fiction. For over twenty-five years, PublicAffairs has published books at the heart of the national and global conversation — books that inform, advocate, educate, and debunk. For two decades, Bold Type Books has aimed to challenge power through narrative by publishing works of urgent and ambitious journalism. As a whole, the Basic Books Group is dedicated to the proposition that ideas matter.
