Company Name: ENCOUNTER BOOKS
Description: Company Description:
Encounter Books is an activity of Encounter for Culture and Education, a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation dedicated to strengthening the marketplace of ideas and engaging in educational activities to help preserve democratic culture.

Edited by Roger Kimball, Encounter Books continues to advance its love of liberty and the cultural achievements of the West against a rising tide of collectivist sentiment and the soft totalitarianism of intellectual conformity. Our authors include Victor Davis Hanson, Thomas Sowell, Greg Lukianoff, and Peter Wood.

We publish about 30 non-fiction titles each year, in trade cloth, trade paper, and e-book formats. The internship offers candidates an opportunity to get involved in publishing and familiarize themselves with all aspects of the trade.
