Westview Press was an American publishing company headquartered in Boulder, Colorado founded in 1975.

Field of work

Westview primarily publishes textbooks.[1]


Westview Press was founded by Frederick A. Praeger in 1975. Prager sold Westview in 1991.[2]

Westview was purchased by HarperCollins.[citation needed] HarperCollins and Westview had difficulty working together due to very different corporate cultures and values.[3] Perseus bought Westview in March 1998 from HarperCollins.[3]

In April 2016, Perseus Books Group's publishing operations, including Westview, were purchased by Hachette Book Group.[4][5] Hachette Book Group's Perseus Books Group division sold it to Taylor & Francis in 2017.[1]
