The Publishing Business


Genome: [r4 Bd=19710101]

When did you last buy a new hardback? Some publishers are going out of business: others are being taken over by large (and often international) firms whose primary interest may not be in books. And yet, at the same time, there are plenty of publishers who seem to be thriving - and new, small, independent publishing firms continue to be set up.

GEORGE SCOTT examines the publishing business, listens to the views of publishers large and small, and considers the related worlds of bookselling, printing, and public libraries. Produced by DANIEL SNOWMAN
