Panarc International Ltd was formed in 1978 as a media consultancy company. It began life pioneering techniques of media coverage analysis but in the 1990s began to research and write factual books on behalf of clients and their publishers.


In 2002, the company took its first tentative steps as an independent publisher, producing a hardback, 28 page illustrated version of The Tortoise and the Hare in verse. The book was published by Impacon Ltd (at that time the UK end of Panarc’s international business).  In 2004, Panarc published the most recent edition of 'Modernity and Tradition', an authoriative text book on the economic and social development of Saudi Arabia from 1932 to 2000.

Today, Panarc Publishing is expanding Panarc’s publishing operations, focusing on a limited number of high quality titles in the fiction and non-fiction fields. It is particularly interested in books which explore ideas in an entertaining and accessible form.
