Quest Books is the imprint of the Theosophical Publishing House, the publishing arm of the Theosophical Society in America. This organization, with 150 branches nationwide, is part of the International Theosophical Society founded in New York in 1875 with present headquarters in Adyar, Madras, India.
Located at the national Society's headquarters in Wheaton, IL, Quest Books is dedicated to publishing works compatible with the aims of the parent organization:
To promote fellowship among all peoples of the world and to encourage the study of religion, philosophy, and science, so that we may better understand ourselves and our place in the Universe. The Society stands for complete freedom of individual search and belief.
Since 1965, Quest has sold over 4 million books by leading cultural thinkers on such increasingly popular subjects as transpersonal psychology, comparative religion, deep ecology, spiritual growth, the development of creativity, and alternative health practices. Through our distributor, Publishers Group West, we offer a backlist of approximately 300 titles, including audio and video tapes, and we release approximately 12 new books each year. In addition, Quest is the sole agent for the Theosophical Publishing Houses in India and the Philippines.
