It is probable that almost every child in India who has studied in a public school in the last 100 years or so has learnt from a book published by Macmillan. Macmillan is the first choice of discerning school teachers and principals.
The company has also made a mark in higher education, particularly in the areas of management. It has published enduring best sellers like Ramaswamy’s Marketing Management, Singh’s Human Embryology and motivational books like Shiv Khera's You Can Win which has sold more than a million copies.
Among the rich author list of Macmillan India are Rabindranath Tagore (Macmillan was the sole copyright owner for decades), I K Gujral, Jaswant Singh, I G Patel, C N R Rao, M S Swaminathan, Shiv Khera, Arindam Chaudhuri, Kapil Dev, Ankit Fadia and other illustrious academicians, scientists and teachers.
The company's titles include books, which have been selling for more than 50 years like Nesfield's Grammar, Hall & Knight and Loney's Mathematics. Its list also includes a wide range of dictionaries and encyclopaedias. The company takes its social responsibilities seriously. The materials published are reviewed and processed to ensure accuracy and correctness before they reach the young students. Not surprisingly, Macmillan was chosen by UNICEF as a critical partner in the publication of the Meena books, an initiative of high social impact aiming at empowering the underprivileged girl child.
Macmillan is a top brand worldwide and has been a leader in its category for over 150 years. We have been the original publisher of some of the world's greatest authors–Lewis Carroll, Lord Tennyson, Henry James, Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling, H G Wells, John Maynard Keynes, Margaret Mitchell, W B Yeats and Rabindranath Tagore.
India too, the very name Macmillan stands for high-quality educational materials. Redefining Learning is the spirit which defines our innovative, customer–focused and forward–looking educational publishing. Being one of the largest and the best–known publishers in the world, Macmillan India publishes academic, educational, fiction and non-fiction books and dictionaries. The company has the distinction of continuity in India's fragmented educational market, which is among the largest and the fastest growing in the world.
Macmillan has possibly the best editorial resources in the country. It focuses on publishing innovative, need–based, stimulating and enlightening books, which are true companions to teachers and students. Macmillan India has over 2,500 titles on its list and has played a significant role in the growth and success of Indian writing. The company has relationships with over 15,000 schools across India and with its 22 offices and showrooms, possibly the widest national network.
Macmillan Publishers India has been a pioneer in e–learning and runs two web–based portals, one on English Language Teaching and the other on Executive Development Programmes, for emerging management study areas. These are in association with premier institutes like IIM Calcutta, MDI Gurgaon and IIT Delhi.
Macmillan India interacts closely with teachers and educationalists as 'Partners in Education'. The company conducts a large number of workshops and seminars on educational themes involving hundreds of teachers countrywide.
