Oneworld Publications is a British independent publishing firm founded in 1986 by Novin Doostdar and Juliet Mabey to publish non-fiction for general and academic markets.[1] Based in London, it later added a fiction list, and now publishes across a wide range of subjects, including history, politics, current affairs, popular science, religion, philosophy, and psychology. Among the writers on its list are Sean M. Carroll, David McRaney, Jared Diamond, Ivor Crewe, Anthony King, Ilan Pappe, Mary Roach, Adam Frank, Peter Cave, Jean Sasson, William Poundstone, John Hick, Hans Küng, Helen Fisher, Vali Nasr, Richard Foltz, Kevin Bales, Bill McKibben, Keith Ward, Farid Esack, Amina Wadud, John Gribbin, Lise Eliot, Daniel Siegel, Susan Blackmore, Barbara Fredrickson, Marlon James, Margaret Mazzantini, Amit Majmudar, Yvvette Edwards, Peter Matthiessen, Joseph Boyden, Deborah Kay Davies, Vanessa Manko, Geoffrey Parrinder, and Debbie Taylor.[2][3]

In 2009 the company launched a fiction list to focus on publishing inspiring, intelligent and thought-provoking novels from around the world. It has received a string of award nominations, among them a long-listing for the prestigious Man Booker Prize for A Cupboard Full of Coats by Yvvette Edwards, a debut British novelist, and in 2014 a long-listing for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction for Reasons She Goes to the Woods by Deborah Kay Davies. In 2012, Oneworld bought its first permanent office in London, at 10 Bloomsbury Street, Bloomsbury.

Now publishing around 80 titles a year, Oneworld books are distributed worldwide by Random House (GBS) in the UK, by Publishers Group West in the United States, by Bloomsbury Publishing in Australia, by Pan Macmillan in Europe, by Penguin Group in India, by Jonathan Ball in South Africa, and by a variety of regional distributors in Latin America, the Middle East, and the Far East.
