Grupo Planeta


The necessary culture

Since it was founded, in 1976, Crítica has maintained its vocation of constructing a critical and free culture through classical works of Spanish literature and the publication of current titles. Through its catalogue, which now contains over two thousand titles, Crítica offers the general public subjects such as philosophy, history, archaeology, politics, anthropology, economics and popular science.

When it became part of Grupo Planeta in 1999, Crítica set sail on a new course that has consolidated it in the Spanish-language publishing arena, and in the years since then it has also reached new generations of readers interested in finding out about and understanding the world around them.

With over two thousand titles published, in 2007 Crítica received the National Prize for the Best Cultural Publisher, awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Culture.
