New and forthcoming


Change brings uncertainty, and with uncertainty comes the need for fresh voices that can open up new perspectives, remind us of the wisdom of the ages, help us clarify and focus our thoughts, or simply distract us from the news cycle for a moment with profound and entertaining books on matters of lasting importance.

Europa Compass is a new non-fiction imprint from Europa Editions featuring sophisticated yet accessible titles on travel and contemporary culture, on popular science, history, philosophy, and politics. Books that are informative, entertaining, and diverse. Books by authors who enjoy large readerships and outstanding reputations both in their native countries and in translation but have never been available in English. By translating and publishing these authors, we hope to introduce readers to new points of view, ideas, and narrative styles. Europa Compass also publishes standout works by English-language authors from the U.K., America, Australia, and elsewhere in the Anglophone world.

The Europa Compass list is international, diverse, and inclusive.

Reading, like life, is a journey. This is your Compass.
