Free Press (publisher)

Free Press is an American publisher and imprint of Simon & Schuster that has been in business for over fifty years. It was headquartered in Glencoe, Illinois, until mid-1960s, where it was known as "The Free Press of Glencoe". Well known for publishing serious non-fiction, before 2001 the Free Press specialized in politically conservative works. Its focus has broadened since Simon & Schuster acquired it.
