Stone Bridge Press was founded in 1989 by Peter Goodman. Seventeen years later in 2005, Goodman sold the press to Japanese book distributor Yohan Inc. Shortly before Yohan Inc. announced their bankruptcy in July 2008, Stone Bridge was bought by IBC (Intercultural Book Company) Publishing of Tokyo, a former Yohan subsidiary. In Fall 2009, Goodman reacquired Stone Bridge from IBC. They are now an independent press.
