History[edit]

The News Building, HarperCollins's UK headquarters in London

Collins[edit] Main article: William Collins, Sons Harper[edit] Main article: Harper (publisher) Mergers and acquisitions[edit] In 1989, Collins was bought by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, and the publisher was combined with Harper & Row, which NewsCorp had acquired two years earlier. In addition to the simplified and merged name, the logo for HarperCollins
HarperCollins
was derived from the torch logo for Harper and Row, and the fountain logo for Collins, which were combined into a stylized set of flames atop waves. In 1999, News Corporation
News Corporation
purchased the Hearst Book
Book
Group, consisting of William Morrow & Company and Avon Books. These imprints are now published under the rubric of HarperCollins.[2] HarperCollins
HarperCollins
bought educational publisher Letts and Lonsdale in March 2010.[citation needed] In 2011, HarperCollins
HarperCollins
announced they had agreed to acquire the publisher Thomas Nelson.[3] The purchase was completed on July 11, 2012, with an announcement that Thomas Nelson would operate independently given the position it has in Christian book publishing.[4] Both Thomas Nelson and Zondervan were then organized as imprints, or "keystone publishing programs," under a new division, HarperCollins
HarperCollins
Christian Publishing.[5][6] Key roles in the reorganization were awarded to former Thomas Nelson executives.[7] Management history[edit] Brian Murray,[8] the current CEO of HarperCollins, succeeded Jane Friedman who was CEO from 1997 to 2008. Notable management figures include Lisa Sharkey, current senior vice president and director of creative development and Barry Winkleman from 1989 to 1994. United States
United States
v. Apple Inc.[edit] In April 2012, the United States
United States
Department of Justice filed United States v. Apple Inc., naming Apple, HarperCollins, and four other major publishers as defendants. The suit alleged that they conspired to fix prices for e-books, and weaken Amazon.com's position in the market, in violation of antitrust law.[9] In December 2013, a federal judge approved a settlement of the antitrust claims, in which HarperCollins
HarperCollins
and the other publishers paid into a fund that provided credits to customers who had overpaid for books due to the price-fixing.[10] U.S. warehouse closings[edit] It was announced to employees privately and then later in the day on November 5, 2012, that HarperCollins
HarperCollins
was closing its remaining two U.S. warehouses, in order to merge shipping and warehousing operations with R. R. Donnelley in Indiana. The Scranton, PA warehouse closed in September 2013 and a Nashville, TN warehouse, under the name (D.B.A.) Thomas Nelson (which distributes the religious arm of HarperCollins/ Zondervan Books), in the winter of 2013. Several office positions and departments continued to work for HarperCollins
HarperCollins
in Scranton, but in a new location.[11] The Scranton warehouse closing eliminated approximately 200 jobs, and the Nashville warehouse closing eliminated up to 500 jobs (exact number of distribution employees is unknown).[12] HarperCollins
HarperCollins
previously closed 2 U.S. warehouses, one in Williamsport, PA in 2011 and another in Grand Rapids, MI in 2012.[13] “We have taken a long-term, global view of our print distribution and are committed to offering the broadest possible reach for our authors," said HarperCollins
HarperCollins
Chief Executive Brian Murray, according to Publishers Weekly."We are retooling the traditional distribution model to ensure we can competitively offer the entire HarperCollins catalog to customers regardless of location.” Company officials attribute the closings and mergers to the rapidly growing demand for e-book formats and the decline in print purchasing.[citation needed] Notable books[edit] HarperCollins
HarperCollins
maintains the backlist of many of the books originally published by their many merged imprints, in addition to having picked up new authors since the merger. Authors published originally by Harper include Mark Twain, the Brontë sisters
Brontë sisters
and William Makepeace Thackeray. Authors published originally by Collins include H. G. Wells, Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie
and J. R. R. Tolkien. This is a list of some of the more noted books, and series, published by HarperCollins

and their various imprints and merged publishing houses. This is a dynamic list and may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness. You can help by expanding it with reliably sourced entries.

Harper Children's Books[edit] Children's book editor Ursula Nordstrom was the director of Harper's Department of Books for Boys and Girls from 1940 to 1973, overseeing the publication of classics such as Goodnight Moon, Where the Wild Things Are, The Giving Tree, Charlotte's Web, Beverly Cleary's series starring Ramona Quimby, and Harold and the Purple Crayon. They were the publishing home of Maurice Sendak, Shel Silverstein, and Margaret Wise Brown.[15] In 1998, Nordstrom's personal correspondence was published as Dear Genius: The Letters of Ursula Nordstrom (illustrated by Maurice Sendak), edited by Charlotte Zolotow. Zolotow began her career as a stenographer to Nordstrom, became her protege, and went on to write more than 80 books and edit hundreds of others, including Nordstrom's The Secret Language and the works of Paul Fleischman. Zolotow later became head of the Children's Books Department, and went on to become the company's first female Vice-President. The Chronicles of Narnia

Business strategy[edit]

2008 conference booth

Web approach[edit] In order to boost book sales and reach the online market, HarperCollins
HarperCollins
has created a browsing feature on its website, whereby customers can read selected excerpts from books before purchasing.[22][23] There are some concerns among publishers with this approach because they feel that the online books could be exploited by file-sharing.[24] In addition, excerpts of books are also available to mobile phone users.[25] HarperCollins
HarperCollins
were first to market with an innovative approach to slushpile management with the introduction of the authonomy website. From 2009 to 2010, they operated Bookarmy, a social networking site. At the beginning of October 2013, the company announced a partnership with online digital library Scribd. The official statement revealed that the "majority" of the HarperCollins
HarperCollins
US and HarperCollins Christian catalogs will be available in Scribd's subscription service. Chantal Restivo-Alessi, chief digital officer at HarperCollins, explained to the media that the deal represents the first time that the publisher has released such a large portion of its catalog.[26] Speakers Bureau[edit] The HarperCollins Speakers Bureau
HarperCollins Speakers Bureau
(also known as HCSB) is the first lecture agency to be created by a major publishing house.[27] It was launched in May 2005[27] as a division of HarperCollins
HarperCollins
to book paid speaking engagements for the authors HarperCollins, and its sister companies, publish. Andrea Rosen is the director.[28] Some of the notable authors the HCSB represents include Carol Alt, Dennis Lehane, Gregory Maguire,[29] Danny Meyer, Mehmet Oz, Sidney Poitier, Ted Sorensen, and Kate White. HarperStudio[edit] HarperCollins
HarperCollins
announced HarperStudio in 2008 as a "new, experimental unit... that will eliminate the traditional profit distributions to authors. The long-established author advances and bookseller returns has not proved to be very profitable to either the author or the publisher. The approach HarperStudio is now taking is to offer little or no advance, but instead to split the profit 50% (rather than the industry standard 15%), with the author." The division was headed by Bob Miller, previously the founding publisher of Hyperion, the adult books division of the Walt Disney Company.[30][31] HarperStudio folded in March 2010 after Miller left for Workman Publishing.[32] HarperCollins

was a book written by O. J. Simpson
O. J. Simpson
about his alleged murder of Nicole Simpson, which was planned as a HarperCollins
HarperCollins
title, and which attracted considerable controversy and a legal battle over publication. Ben Collins[edit] In August 2010, the company became embroiled in a legal battle with the BBC
BBC
after a book it was due to publish, later identified as the forthcoming autobiography of racing driver Ben Collins, revealed the identity of The Stig
The Stig
from Top Gear.[33] In his blog, Top Gear executive producer Andy Wilman
Andy Wilman
accused HarperCollins
HarperCollins
of "hoping to cash in" on the BBC's intellectual property, describing the publishers as "a bunch of chancers".[34] On September 1 the BBC's request for an injunction preventing the book from being published was turned down, effectively confirming the book's revelation that "The Stig" was indeed Collins.[35] East and West[edit] The company became embroiled in controversy in 1998 after it was revealed it blocked Chris Patten's (the last British governor of Hong Kong) book East and West after a direct intervention by the then-CEO of News International, Rupert Murdoch.[36] It was later revealed by Stuart Proffitt, the editor who had worked on the book for HarperCollins, that this intervention was designed to appease the Chinese authorities‒of whom the book was critical‒as Murdoch intended to extend his business empire into China
China
and did not wish to cause problems there by allowing the book to be published.[37] Murdoch's intervention caused both Proffitt's resignation from the company and outrage from international media outside of News International. Chris Patten
Chris Patten
later published with Macmillan Publishing, initially in America, where it carried the logo "The book that Rupert Murdoch refused to publish".[38] After a successful legal campaign against HarperCollins, Patten went on to publish the book in the UK in September 1998 after accepting a sum of £500,000 and receiving an apology from Rupert Murdoch.[39] eBooks[edit] In March 2011, HarperCollins
HarperCollins
announced it would distribute eBooks to libraries with DRM enabled to delete the item after being lent 26 times.[40][41] HarperCollins
HarperCollins
has drawn criticism of this plan, in particular its likening eBooks, which are purely digital, to traditional paperback trade books, which wear over time.[42][43] Omission of Israel from an atlas[edit] In December 2014, The Tablet reported that an atlas published for Middle East schools did not label Israel on a map of the Middle East.[44] A representative for Collins Bartholomew, a subsidiary of HarperCollins
HarperCollins
that specializes in maps, explained that including Israel would have been “unacceptable” to their customers in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf
Arab states of the Persian Gulf
and the omission was in line with “local preferences”.[45][46] The company later apologized and destroyed all the books.[47][48] What the (Bleep) Just Happened?[edit] HarperCollins
HarperCollins
announced in January 2017 that they would discontinue selling copies of Monica Crowley's book What the (Bleep) Just Happened?, due to allegations of plagiarism.[49] The 2012 book had lifted passages from a number of sources including columns, news articles and think tank reports.[49] HarperCollins
HarperCollins
said in a statement to CNN's KFile, "The book which has reached the end of its natural sales cycle, will not longer be offered for purchase until such time as the author has the opportunity to source and revise the material.[49] See also[edit]
