About Human & Rosseau

Human & Rousseau was founded in 1959. Although we initially focused on Afrikaans books, Human & Rousseau today publishes both English and Afrikaans and is one of the most esteemed general publishers in South Africa..

On the fiction side, Human & Rousseau’s focus is on quality Afrikaans and English literature, popular reads, children and youth books for the general, mass and schools market. We are the South African home of internationally renowned authors like Breyten Breytenbach, André Brink and Karel Schoeman.

In nonfiction, Human & Rousseau is a leading cookery publisher, featuring classics (such as Cook & Enjoy and Louis Leipoldt’s Kos vir die kenner) along with the most beautiful and up to date new food and lifestyle books.
