HarperCollins is one of the world’s largest publishing companies and is one of the five major English-language publishing companies, alongside Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, Hachette, and Macmillan.

The company was founded in 1989, is headquartered in New York City, and is a subsidiary of News Corp. The name is a combination of several publishing firm names: Harper & Row, an American publishing company acquired in 1987 (whose own name was the result of an earlier merger of Harper & Brothers (founded 1817) and Row, Peterson & Company), together with UK publishing company William Collins, Sons (founded 1819), acquired in 1990.
