In 1903, the Ullstein family added a book division to their successful newspaper publishing business. Ullstein Buchverlage made its mark with the publication of the works of Berthold Brecht, Lion Feuchtwanger, Erich Maria Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front and Vicki Baum’s Grand Hotel amongst many others. During WWII the company was annexed and sold off in parts to other publishing houses. After the war, the family tried to revive their company and the success of the past. From 1959 onwards it was owned by Axel Springer Group, before it became part of the Swedish company Bonnier Media in 2004. Today Ullstein Buchverlage is again one of the leading trade publishers in Germany. Across several imprints (Ullstein, Ullstein fünf, Ullstein extra, Econ, List, Plötz & Betzholz, Midnight, Forever, Propyläen, Allegria and Ullstein leben) we publish international and German fiction, general non-fiction, history, current affairs, biographies, popular science, business and spiritual titles. Authors like Nele Neuhaus, Corina Bomann, Oliver Pötzsch, Annette Hess, Giulia Enders, Markus Gabriel but also Jo Nesbo, John Le Carre, Joan Didion, Bernie Sanders, J.D Vance call Ullstein their home.
