With around 9,000 available works, around 80 specialist journals and an annual production of up to 1,500 publications, the publishing house is one of the largest German book and magazine publishers. Around 650 people are employed in Munich, and a branch with the editorial offices of the majority of legal journals is located in Frankfurt am Main . The C. H. Beck'sche print shop, which also works for other publishers, is located in Nördlingen . The company also has its own delivery facility .
The company is managed in the sixth and seventh generation by Hans Dieter Beck in the areas of law, taxes and economics and - in the successor to his father Wolfgang Beck - by Jonathan Beck in the areas of literature, non-fiction and science.
Carl Gottlob Beck founded the publishing house on September 9, 1763 and expanded his printing house in Nördlingen to include a bookshop . Beck gave u. a. Nördlingen's first newspaper and published compendiums on medicine and natural history, economics and pedagogy, as well as religious education. The publishing house bears its current name after Carl Gottlob's son Carl Heinrich Beck. Under Oscar Beck , the publishing house moved to Munich-Schwabing in 1889, where the headquarters are still located today. The print shop stayed in Nördlingen. In the course of the 19th century the publishing house made a name for itself primarily in the field of theological specialist literature , but then increasingly became a scientific publisher for the fields of antiquity and literary studies as well as history and law . In addition, he always had a literary program. During World War appeared the traveler between both worlds of Walter Flex , a very successful book of 1920 and 1930, which has a circulation of one million copies, the best-selling book of the publishing house and one of the best-selling German-language works of the 20th century.
After Bavaria entered the German Empire in 1871, C. H. Beck became more and more a legal specialist publisher, which published important collections of laws and legal specialist publications, which, however, were mainly related to Bavaria. Heinrich Beck gradually took over the management of the publishing house until Oscar Beck's death in 1924. During this time, the publisher's famous Weimar trio of authors appeared: Oswald Spengler , Albert Schweitzer and Egon Friedell .
During the Nazi era , the publishing house benefited from political developments. In 1933, in the course of Aryanization, Beck-Verlag took over the legal publishing house of the Berlin publisher Otto Liebmann. The Berlin Liebmann-Verlag had everything that Munich Beck-Verlag lacked: access to the Reich ministries in Berlin, a legal newspaper, the DJZ , and a diversified commentary program as well as a publishing house in Berlin. After the NSDAP came to power, Liebmann came under pressure because the National Socialists persecuted him for his “Jewish” origins. He was forced to sell. At first there was no buyer. When Heinrich Beck also hesitated, authors from Liebmann Verlag such as Johannes Popitz and Carl Friedrich Goerdeler urged Heinrich Beck to buy the publisher. Finally, Liebmann and Beck reached an agreement. The publishing house went to Beck. According to a post-war presentation of Liebmann's authorized signatory Ebel who was involved in the sale and who was taken over by Heinrich Beck in the same position at Liebmann's request, the negotiations are said to have taken place “in a fair manner” and as if “honored men”. In a letter to the tax office on January 11, 1934, however, Liebmann stated that he had been “pressured and compelled” to conclude the purchase agreement with Beck. In a letter to Ebel from the same year, Liebmann said: "You are quite right when you say (...) that Dr. Beck is a man of the noblest disposition and will never do or ask for anything wrong. No, Mr. Ebel, my concerns were not directed in any direction against Mr. Beck (…). ” With the Berlin publisher Liebmann, publications such as the Deutsche Juristen-Zeitung and the series of short comments were transferred to CH Beck. One of these comments, the BGB commentary, became very well known after consulting the National Socialist lawyer Otto Palandt and was continued in post-war Germany. This enabled the C. H. Beck'schen publishing bookstore to become a legal monopoly publisher. In the Third Reich, the publisher published text editions and commentaries on National Socialist legislation close to the state ( Willoweit ): In 1936, for example, a commentary on the Blood Protection Act was published by Wilhelm Stuckart and Hans Globke . Even the fascist manifesto Mussolini appeared in German translation in the publishing house. Until 1936, however, C. H. Beck also brought works by Jewish authors onto the market. In 1937, the publisher Heinrich Beck joined the NSDAP, which he later justified by saying "to keep the traditional publishing house alive".
Because of Beck's National Socialist involvement, the publisher initially did not receive a license from the American occupation forces after the war. The problem of involvement in the Nazi regime was circumvented by founding a subsidiary, the Biederstein Verlag . This publisher received a license from the occupying power without any problems . In 1948, Roderich Fick built today's publishing house on Wilhelmstrasse in Schwabing, as the publishing house had been badly damaged in the war. It was not until 1949 that C. H. Beck received a license to publish again. The publishing house is still owned by the Beck family.
Carl Hoeller succeeded the legal editor Walter Mallmann and shaped the development of the content of the legal publisher until his retirement in 1978. From November 1949, C. H. Beck published the Neue Juristische Wochenschrift (NJW), which developed into the central legal publication organ. In 1948/49 the “short legal textbooks” came on the market, which meanwhile include works on the examination material of the two state law exams. In 1958 the first basic delivery of today's five-volume loose-leaf commentary on the Basic Law appeared, edited by Theodor Maunz and Günter Dürig . In 1962 the publishing house expanded its legal journals to include the “German Tax Law” (DStR) magazine.
In 2013, the CH Beck publishing house celebrated its 250th anniversary. On the occasion of this anniversary, the publishing house published documentations by the authors Stefan Rebenich and Uwe Wesel . In a ceremony on September 7, 2013 in the Prinzregententheater in Munich, the publishers Hans Dieter Beck and Wolfgang Beck remembered the past centuries in front of 800 guests and media representatives and gave an outlook on the future of the publishing house.
Also in 2013, CH Beck printed the Catholic prayer and hymn book Praise God in a first edition of 3.6 million copies.
CH Beck is a partner in the Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag , with whom he also cooperates on the legal text volumes Beck -tex in dtv and the popular advice books Beck-Rechtsberater in dtv , but also with the Beck-Wirtschaftsberater series in dtv .

The program for law as well as the cultural, historical and literary program aimed at different target groups, respectively. The publications of the two programs are managed independently under the common brand CH Beck: Editing, production, marketing and sales are available twice, and they work almost like independent publishers. The two areas also appear separately at book fairs.
CH Beck: Law, Taxes, Economics
The publishing house owes its preferred position in the market for legal literature, among other things, to the loose-leaf law collections Schönfelder and Sartorius , which were approved for several decades as the only aid in the legal state exams. The publisher publishes around 80 legal journals such as Neue Juristische Wochenschrift or Legal Schulung , as well as a number of economic journals .
Today the publisher has around 7,000 works in its range: including standard legal literature such as the Palandt commentaries on the BGB with subsidiary laws, Fischer on the penal code or Kopp / Schenke or Kopp / Ramsauer in administrative law, Schmidt on the income tax law , Schmidt-Futterer on tenancy law or the Creifelds legal dictionary . From the program of the subsidiary Vahlen, the comment fitting on the Works Constitution Act, which is widespread among works councils, should be mentioned. The Internet portal Beck-Online is also used by judges and public prosecutors as part of a cooperation agreement with some regional justice administrations, alongside competitor Juris .
CH Beck: literature, non-fiction, science
Wolfgang Beck called the branch he had managed for over 40 years as a "cultural studies publisher", and in the media he is described as "committed to a humanistic tradition". A presentation for the 2013 anniversary came to the conclusion: "With traditional educational knowledge, the publisher still achieves high print runs, which is not an easy task." Since February 2015, Wolfgang Beck's son Jonathan Beck has headed the division.

CH Beck Paperback
The beginnings of the series can be traced back to 1959, when it was still in black linen cover. From 1965 the paperback series was officially called the "black series". From 1987 this series no longer appeared in black cover and was called the Beck'sche series . Since January 2014 it has been called CH Beck Paperback . To date, more than 2,000 volumes have been published, including first editions and paperback editions of successful hardcover titles. The series contains some “longsellers” - for example, the ecological book In Search of Lost Happiness by Jean Liedloff or the books by folklorist Rolf Wilhelm Brednich have been in the program for decades. This series also includes scientific works and current political or social contributions to the discussion.
CH Beck knowledge
The CH Beck Wissen series was founded in 1995 as a sub- series of the Beck series . Topics are biographies, history, literature and language, medicine and psychology, music, nature and technology, philosophy, religion and art. In spring and autumn, 18 (initially only a dozen) new volumes are currently being published. Some of them are now in their 8th or 9th edition (for example Roman History by Klaus Bringmann and The Germanen by Herwig Wolfram ). New editions have been revised, supplemented or expanded. So far, more than 500 volumes have appeared in the series, which maintains market leadership in its segment and has a total circulation of more than five million copies. The most successful were:
- Klaus Bringmann : Roman History (40,000 copies sold),
- Horst Dippel : History of the USA (35,000 copies sold),
- Klaus-Jürgen Matz : The 1000 most important dates in world history (30,000 copies sold).
The field of psychology / medicine is also extensive with 45 titles. In addition, the experiment started in 2003 with art historical titles was continued.
Hans-Ulrich Wehler worked on the topic of nationalism , the two rhetoric volumes are from Gert Ueding , Jutta Limbach wrote about the Federal Constitutional Court , Karl Christ about the Roman Empire and the excavation director in Olympia , Ulrich Sinn , about Olympia .
Historians such as Martin Jehne , Josef Wiesehöfer or Hartwin Brandt , who wrote the new handbook of classical studies , which deals with the Roman Empire and is also published by CH Beck, have started to write for the general public here.
In 2005 the series "The 101 Most Important Questions" followed, in which complex topics are bundled into 101 questions and answers; there are around 40 volumes here.
