Secker & Warburg began as Martin Secker in 1910, and became Secker & Warburg in 1936, when it was purchased by Frederic Warburg. In the 1980s, it became a part of the Heinemann Group and later an imprint of Random House. Known for being both anti-Fascist and Anti-Soviet, Secker & Warburg's publications included the works of Norman Douglas, George Orwell, C. L. R. James, Colette, Kafka, and Thomas Mann. The archives of Secker & Warburg are split between the University of Reading, the University of Illinois, and the Lilly Library in Indiana.
