About

Allen Lane, the innovative founder of Penguin Books, created his eponymous hardcover imprint in 1967 to showcase serious non-fiction. It featured works that had a strong point of view, provoked public debate and broadened our understanding. Launched in Canada in 2010, Allen Lane continues to embrace the same philosophy by publishing provocative, groundbreaking books in history, politics, biography, science and current affairs. Award-winning and bestselling authors published under the prestigious imprint include Margaret MacMillan, Henry Kissinger, Adrienne Clarkson, Jeffrey Simpson and Tim Cook.
