For 30 years, André Schiffrin headed one of the most prestigious US publishing houses, Pantheon Books, publishing works by Foucault, Sartre, Chomsky, Medvedev etc. Since 1991, he managed The New Press, an independent publishing house. Founded in 1990 as a major alternative to the large, commercial publishers, The New Press is a not-for-profit publishing house operated editorially in the public interest. It is committed to publishing in innovative ways works of educational, cultural, and community value that, despite their intellectual merits, may be deemed insufficiently profitable by commercial publishers. Like the Public Broadcasting System and National Public Radio as they were originally conceived, The New Press aims to provide ideas and viewpoints under-represented in the mass media. As an author of international renown, André Schiffrin (1935-2013) analyses the threats to the world of publishing and uses his works to protest against the globalisation phenomenon as it impacts the world of publishing and media. He has published among other works L’édition sans éditeurs (Publishing without Publishers) and Le contrôle de la parole (Controlling speech) published by La Fabrique in France.
