Founded in 2002, Iztok-Zapad (East-West) Publishers has forged a reputation as one of the leading and most dynamic publishing houses for the books of academic and general interest in Bulgaria, seeking a variety of themes and high quality. Its main purpose has always been to unite the knowledge of the West with the wisdom of the East and thus to make the Bulgarian readers acquainted with the greatest literary achievements of both the worlds.
We firmly believe that the books could help us get better understanding of the world and of life. Reading could be both a pleasurable activity and a transformative force. The opportunity to make high-quality books in all areas of human knowledge is the driving force behind the small, but enthusiastic team of Iztok-Zapad. It is a joy and a privilege to be able to introduce you to the masterpieces of human thought. We undertake this sacred job with all the due deference. It makes no difference whether we refer to fiction or non-fiction, to classical or contemporary titles, to eastern or western literature – we always try to choose the most outstanding, the most meaningful and wisest books to help you know the world. Even better – to help you know yourself. Is there a more worthwhile adventure than that?
