Kaufman and Greenberg was a publishing company started by Richard Kaufman and Alan C. Greenberg, CEO of Bear Stearns.

Kaufman self-published his first two modest books, then sought a partner for the financing required to publish larger books. Greenberg, also a highly-respected amateur magician, brought the financing that Kaufman required and the company Kaufman and Greenberg was born. For the next 20 years it published many of the most highly-respected books in the field, capturing the sleight-of-hand methods and magic from many of the world's top magicians in printed form.

Around 1998, Greenberg (who financed the publication of all the books) and Kaufman dissolved their agreement and books published by Kaufman were done under Kaufman and Company.[1]
