Dar Shorouq (Arabic: دار الشروق) is an Arabic publishing house based in Beirut and Cairo. It publishes books in politics, biographies, memoirs, history, philosophy, social sciences, religion, nationalist thought, and art as well as children's books.
Muhammad al-Mu'allem (1918 - 1994) established Dar Shorouq in 1968, crowning a career in publishing that began in the early 1940s with a simplified science book written by the physicist Ali Moustafa Mosharafa until the company's nationalization in 1966. He started the venture with Ibrahim al-Mu'allem in Cairo and Beirut.
The administration is composed of Ibrahim El Mu'allem, president; the engineer Aadel al-Mu'allem, vice president; Ahmed az-Ziadi, general director of publishing; Amira Abulmajd, director of children's book publishing; and Helmi at-Touni, artistic director.
Dar Shorouq employs approximately 1200 staff members—directors, engineers, editors, artists, administrators, and workers. Dar Shorouq has a wide distribution network with agencies in most parts of the world, and a number of offices in Cairo and Beirut.
