Contact was founded in 1933 against fascism and Nazism.
We published The Diary of Anne Frank, among many other now classic books that are still in print. Since then Contact always had a list that reflected the problems of the world and was known for top-notch writing and classic works of fiction (Graham Greene, Ernest Hemingway, Dorris Lessing, Iris Murdoch). Contact publishes about a 100 titles a year and has always published very strong nonfiction in a broad range of genres: current affairs, economics, psychology, history, science, evolution. In 1985 the company made a fresh start, with a new emphasis on current and historical non-fiction, populair science and psychology and especially Dutch fiction. Contact now houses some of the best Dutch authors currently writing. Some of our prize-winning international authors include: Kofi Annan, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Dexter Filkins, Francis Fukuyama, Niall Ferguson, Malcolm Gladwell, Douglas Hofstadter, Tony Judt, Steven Pinker, Samantha Power, Richard Powers, Salman Rushdie, Simon Schama, George Soros, and Fareed Zakaria.
