Frederick Ungar Publishing Company was a New York publisher which was founded in 1940, and acquired by Continuum Publishing Company in 1985.[1] Founder Frederick Ungar (who also translated over 200 works), fled Vienna, where he had worked as a publisher since 1922, for New York in 1939 in the face of Nazi occupation. He died in 1988.[2]

The company published over 2,000 titles, including many reference books.[2][3] Translations of Thomas Mann and Erich Fromm assisted in making those works more popular in the United States.[4]
