Emerald Publishing began life in 1991 and has always been Uk-based. The company originally grew from its sister company Straightforward Publishing and is technically an imprint of this company retaining the essential ethos. We started as a low-cost publisher of self-help books and have established a recognized name in libraries and bookshops across the UK. How did we get here - well we started by getting self-help books published with ourselves doing most of the work. It was hard work, with more than one pitfall on the way, but we've managed to establish a solid brand in this arena. We now have many talented professionals who write for us and keep our titles up-to-date.
Emerald is simply a continuation of this straightforward ethos with books that are considered to be either more far-ranging or, equally, in-depth and detailed on their particular subjects. Emerald books are, therefore, considered as memorable quality titles from experienced professional authors. We pride ourselves that our authors know their subjects thoroughly.
