The acquisition will broaden Casemate’s list beyond military history as it adds Oxbow—a leading U.K. publisher and distributor in the fields of academic archaeology and ancient and medieval history—as well as David Brown, an importer and reseller of books in the academic disciplines of archaeology, ancient history, philosophy, theology and other related fields.
According to Casemate, going forward, each unit of the new group will retain its brand and position in the market, and there will be a “pooling” of resources in the production of books and in sales and marketing. Oxbow proprietary titles and those of Oxbow’s and David Brown Book Company’s distribution clients will also gain access to Casemate’s e-book program.
