About Us

International Focus Press (IFP)

IFP is a small press that was established in 1994. Founded by Dan Korem, an investigative journalist, he saw the need to integrate traditional publishing with internet updates, which act as a “live addendum” for each book. It’s believed IFP was the first non-fiction press to provide this feature for its readers. The Live Addendum keeps readers up to date and new editions are less frequent.

Presently, we publish critical issue books by noted authorities that address issues of interest across cultures.

We also provide DVDs and and other materials related to each book as well an occasional author workshop.

Team IFP is a rag tag assemblage with decades of top-flight experience.
