History

On its website Paragon states that it "is a member of the Continuum International Publishing Group, New York. In 1981, the International Cultural Foundation purchased Paragon Book and Reprint Corporation in New York, a company specializing in Asian books and Asian philosophy, and expanded it to a mid-size publishing house to support religious scholars, philosophers, social theorists, and scientists writing on issues affecting contemporary life. In 1996, the main office moved to St. Paul, Minnesota".[2]
