Schocken Books is an offspring of the Schocken Verlag, a publishing company that was established in Berlin in 1931 with a second office in Prague by the Schocken Department Store owner Salman Schocken. It published the writings of Martin Buber, Franz Rosenzweig, Franz Kafka and S. Y. Agnon, among others.

After being closed by the Germans in 1939, Salman Schocken, the owner, who had immigrated from Germany to Palestine in 1934, founded the Hebrew-language Schocken Publishing House in Mandate Palestine. Salman Schocken himself immigrated to the U.S. in 1940. In 1945 he founded the English-language Schocken Books in New York City. In 1987 it was bought up by Random House. Schocken Books continues to publish Jewish literary works.
