    Hosei University Press’s prolific publication of translations and general-interest books in the years after its 1948 founding made it a crucial provider of university extension services amid the “postwar enlightenment” movement to promote democracy and modernization in Japan following World War II. By its 60th anniversary in 2008, the press had produced some 2,500 titles. From academic studies and textbooks to works for a general audience, its broad range of publications in the humanities and social sciences represents an excellent balance between original scholarship and translations of overseas sources. While arguably best known for the long-running Universitas series of translated works, primarily in philosophy and thought, the press has also garnered acclaim for two more recent series: Sapientia, a collection of inquiries into contemporary society begun in 2008, and Mizu to “machi” no monogatari (Of Water and Cities), issued since 2009.

    Kagaku-Dojin Publishing Co. was founded in 1954 for the purpose of issuing a monthly scientific journal titled Kagaku (Chemistry). The new enterprise was capitalized jointly by Professors Munio Kotake (who named the company) and Ryutaro Tsuchida of Osaka University; Professors Ichiro Sakurada and Ryohei Oda of Kyoto University; Professors Minoru Imoto and Takashi Kubota of Osaka City University; and the first two presidents of the company, Toshiaki Sone and Teiichi Ueshita. The journal has grown and flourished over the years, with its 750th issue slated to appear in late 2013. In addition, the company publishes occasional supplements to the journal focused on individual topics under the Bessatsu Kagaku (Additional Volume of Chemistry) imprint, as well as a now-extensive backlist of books ranging across the full spectrum of scientific disciplines. Since its earliest days, Kagaku-Dojin has made “quality content and ease of understanding” its motto and has chosen not to be driven solely by the pursuit of profit. Rather, it places priority on publishing books that contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge and disseminating that specialized knowledge to the general public.

    Kosei Publishing Co. was founded in 1966 to facilitate the broader dissemination of Buddhist thought. In the years since, it has been making the appeal of Buddhism known to a large readership through books that examine Buddhist thought from many different perspectives in easy-to-understand critiques and commentaries.

    The 15-volume Shin Ajia Bukkyo-shi (A New History of Buddhism in Asia) represents a new standard for treating the history of Buddhism. Alongside such major undertakings, the company publishes a wide range of other books on Buddhist writings, religion, education, social welfare, health and other subjects.

    The company has also published over 300 books for children. Targeting readers from age zero through senior high school, these titles include picture books, storybooks and literature, nonfiction, and philosophical essays. The picture book Nani o tabete kita no? (What Did You Eat?) has continued to sell briskly as a reader favorite for over three decades since it was first published. A series of picture books by Yoko Imoto, as well as the Piyo-piyo (Cheep Cheep) series by Noriko Kudoh, have also garnered large numbers of loyal fans.

    Some Kosei children’s titles have been reprinted in school textbooks or adopted for classroom use. Kosei titles are also frequently included on reading lists and recommended book lists compiled by various schools and organizations.

    Maruzen Publishing Co. was founded in February 2011 when parent firm Maruzen Co. spun off its publishing division as an independent corporation. The parent company’s publishing activities can be traced back to 1872, when it brought out Shinyaku seiko (Properties of New Medicines) under the Maruya Shuppan imprint. Some of its other early milestones as a pioneer in the dissemination of new knowledge during the period of “civilization and enlightenment” that followed the Meiji Restoration of 1868 were Kagaku nikki (Chemistry Journal; 1877), Butsuri nikki (Physics Journal; 1878), Shintai shisho (New Poetry; 1882), and Manabi no tomoshibi (The Lantern of Learning; 1897?).

    Today, Maruzen continues to contribute to the advancement of science and technology by publishing a broad range of references, technical books, university textbooks, and web content in the medical and pharmaceutical fields as well as in other scientific and technical areas. In addition, it produces numerous video products spanning such diverse subjects as nursing, eldercare, social welfare, medical services, insurance, physical fitness, the arts, psychology, and business management, and also serves as the distributor for BBC and University of the Air publications.
