    • found: Rebranding of Continuum, Berg and Bristol Classical Press, press release dated November 2012, viewed December 4, 2014: (In 2008, Bloomsbury decided to invest in building a new academic division. Since then, our academic portfolio has grown rapidly and now includes Continuum, T&T Clark, Berg Publishers, Methuen Drama, Arden Shakespeare, Bristol Classical Press, Fairchild Books, AVA, and our home grown Bloomsbury Academic list. We have taken the decision to rebrand Continuum, Berg and Bristol Classical Press titles to Bloomsbury. Where imprint histories are long and very firmly established, we will continue to publish under the original brand, but clearly within the Bloomsbury umbrella. This is the case for Methuen Drama, Arden Shakespeare and T&T Clark. From 1st September 2012: All new Continuum titles will be published under the Bloomsbury name (under the imprint Bloomsbury Academic) [and] All new T&T Clark titles will be cobranded with Bloomsbury (under the imprint Bloomsbury T&T Clark). From 1st January 2013: All new Berg titles, including journals, will be published under the Bloomsbury name (under the imprint Bloomsbury Academic); All new Bristol Classical Press titles will be published under the Bloomsbury name (under the imprint Bloomsbury Academic); The Arden Shakespeare will be co-branded with Bloomsbury (under the imprint Bloomsbury Arden) ; [and] Methuen Drama will be co-branded with Bloomsbury (under the imprint Bloomsbury Methuen Drama). Recent acquisitions Fairchild and AVA will remain as they are for the foreseeable future. Continuum International Publishing Group Limited was acquired by Bloomsbury in 2011. Berg Publishers was acquired by Bloomsbury in 2008. Bristol Classical Press comprises all titles that were previously published by Duckworth Academic, following its acquisition by Bloomsbury in 2010.) {http://www.bloomsbury.com/us/news/rebranding-continuum-berg-bcp/}
