Our Publishing

Founded by brothers Daniel and Alexander in 1843, Macmillan has been a forward-thinking publisher for over 170 years. In the middle of the twentieth century, the vision of former British Prime Minister and company Chairman, Harold Macmillan made education a key investment area for the organisation. 

Since then, Macmillan has evolved to become one of the world’s leading educational publishers, providing educational support for all, from children speaking their first words of English to researchers at the forefront of scientific development.
