Enigma Books

Publishers of significant works of 20th Century History for all readers, students, & scholars

Enigma was founded in 1999 by a group of publishing professionals to fill a vacuum in quality book publishing: to publish in the United States major titles in contemporary history. They aim to provide access to those very important texts for the serious reader, the student and the scholar. Some books are true classics of contemporary history in every sense of the word, time has not reduced any of their compelling importance and a new updated edition reinforces their message. Enigma’s European presence makes it possible for them to translate very important titles that publishers have hitherto not translated into English.
