We are there for you - even in times of crisis

The corona pandemic challenges all of us in many ways. We at HARRASSOWITZ follow a detailed and strict contingency plan, which allows us to continue to be there for our authors and customers while responsibly minimizing the risk of mutual infection.

Most of your usual contact persons work in their individual offices at the publishing house or can be reached in the home office. Despite physical distance, communication among each other and "outside" works perfectly. Our production continues uninterrupted, and we look forward to your new projects! Our printers and our distributor are also still active.

You can place orders as usual in our online shop. Our sales department will also be pleased to receive your requests directly: verlag@harrassowitz.de

By the way: many of our titles are also available as e-books. Use this alternative if you cannot be reached by post!

Let's hope that we will soon be able to get through this difficult time unscathed. Take care of yourself and stay healthy!
