W. W. Norton & Company has been independent since its founding in 1923, when William Warder Nortonand Mary D. Herter Norton first published lectures delivered at the People’s Institute, the adult educa-tion division of New York City’s Cooper Union. The firm soon expanded its program beyond the Institute,publishing books by celebrated academics from America and abroad. By midcentury, the two major pillarsof Norton’s publishing program—trade books and college texts—were firmly established. In the 1950s, theNorton family transferred control of the company to its employees, and today—with a staff of four hundredand a comparable number of trade, college, and professional titles published each year—W. W. Norton &Company stands as the largest and oldest publishing house owned wholly by its employees.Editors: Peter Simon, Ken BartonAssistant Editor: Quynh DoManuscript Editor: Christopher CurioliProject Editor: Rachel MayerElectronic Media Editor: Cliff LandesmanMarketing Manager, Philosophy: Michael MossProduction Manager: Ashley HornaPermissions Manager: Megan JacksonText Design: Lisa BuckleyArt Director: Rubina YehComposition: Achorn InternationalManufacturing:R.
