In August 2008 Random House South Africa and Struik
Publishers announced their merger to create a significant new player in
the African book publishing industry. The new company, known as Random
House Struik (Pty) Ltd, brought together two of the country's most
prominent book publishers under the leadership of Stephen Johnson.
Random House Struik (Pty) Ltd's local publishing, which promotes books written in both English and Afrikaans, is underpinned by Struik's 47–year heritage, publishing mainly non–fiction African titles under the Struik Lifestyle, Struik Nature, Struik Travel & Heritage, Zebra Press and Fernwood Press imprints. Random House SA's local imprint Umuzi, established five years ago to mark the company's 40th anniversary in South Africa, continues to publish new voices in both fiction and non-fiction.
The Random House Group balances this local publishing strength through its many diverse and highly respected imprints, providing Random House Struik (Pty) Ltd with internationally acclaimed authors such as James Patterson, Ian McEwan, Philip Roth, Toni Morrison, Salman Rushdie, Bill Bryson, Richard Branson, Andy McNab, Terry Pratchett, Lee Child, Jilly Cooper, Robert Harris, Dan Brown, Chris Ryan, Mark Haddon, Philip Pullman and Jacqueline Wilson. The Group is also the international publisher of lauded South African writers such as J M Coetzee and André Brink, as well as Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
New Holland is a publishing house dedicated to the highest editorial and
design standards. The company was recently nominated as Britain's fastest
growing gardening publisher, due in no small way to the wide reaching
success of their Specialist Series.
