Peter Lang AG

The Peter Lang Publishing Group consists of companies based in various countries and markets its books worldwide.

Peter Lang, who founded the group, came from a family of renowned Swiss booksellers and publishers. He learned the technical side of publishing in his father's firm before founding his own company.

In 1970, he created Peter Lang GmbH in Frankfurt am Main, which has now expanded to have representation in many German and Austrian cities. Peter Lang AG in Bern became the head office in 1977 and is still the central point for many of the group's activities, such as marketing, sales and distribution.

Peter Lang Publishing, Inc. in New York was created in 1982, Peter Lang AG (now Peter Lang Ltd) was founded in Oxford in 1996, and P.I.E.-Peter Lang was opened in Brussels in 1999.
