The Business of Books: How International Conglomerates Took Over Publishing and Changedthe Way We Read Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Part memoir, part history, Schiffrin's account of the collapsing standards of contemporary publishing offers an engaging counterpoint to recent celebratory memoirs of the industry written by those with more stock options than scruples, warning of the danger to adventurous, intelligent publishing in the bull ring of today's marketplace.

Synopsis:

Part-memoir, part-history, The Business of Books is an irascible, acute and often passionate account of the collapsing standards of contemporary book publishing. It has appeared throughout the world in seventeen different editions.
