Casemate has grown to become the leading publisher in the fields of military history, defense studies, and military science in the USA. Casemate has a burgeoning publishing list covering subjects as diverse as Roman History and today’s current conflicts.
At the same time, many publishers from the USA, UK, continental Europe and beyond, have come to trust Casemate as a valued distribution partner in reaching and maximizing sales from the vibrant US market.

Casemate Academic, originally The David Brown Book Company, was founded in 1983 by David Brown, and started life in a shed in the garden of St Cross College, Oxford. The company quickly outgrew the shed, and moved to more spacious premises where the number of books grew and grew, as did the number of staff. In the early 1990s an office was established in North America, which became the David Brown Book Company. In 2011 the company was bought by Casemate Publishers. January 2014 saw the David Brown Book Company change its name to Casemate Academic to better reflect its role within the Casemate Group. Its aims remain the same; to produce high-quality publications, provide our customers with the best information on the books in our field, and a single source of supply. Based in Havertown, PA (in the Philadelphia suburbs) Casemate Academic is predominantly an academic book distributor specializing in archaeology, religion, and literature, producing catalogs and print mailings, as well as displaying titles at a full schedule of conferences throughout the year.
Casemate IPM provides sales, marketing and distribution services for book publishers, in both the academic and trade fields. We provide complete, cost-effective, strategic marketing services for publishers who want to build not only sales and profits but name recognition for their publishing program and authors.
Casemate IPM offers its publishing clients customized marketing and fulfillment – allowing them to outsource these vital operations and lower their personnel and facility costs. These services are ideal for the mid-size publisher who wants to focus on their publishing program and leave the cares and concerns over sales & marketing to a professional and experienced team.
Casemate IPM was formed after the acquisition of the well-established, twenty-year-old International Publishers Marketing (IPM) by Casemate in January 2015.

Oxbow Books was founded in 1983 by David Brown, and started life in a shed in the garden of St Cross College, Oxford. The company quickly outgrew the shed, and moved to more spacious premises where the number of books grew and grew, as did the number of staff. In the mid-1980s an office was established in North America, which became the David Brown Book Company and later Casemate Academic, now a major academic book distributor. Oxbow Books operates in three areas, all of which it has been involved in from the outset; retail bookselling, through our mail-order catalogues (the well-known Oxbow Book News) and website; publishing, and distribution. In 2011 the company was bought by Casemate Publishing. Its aims remain the same; to produce high-quality publications, provide our customers with the best information on the books in our field, and a single source of supply. We are delighted to be celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2013.
