An enquiry by GEORGE SCOTT
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 is usually in business rather than books. And yet, at the same time. there are plenty of publishers who seem to he thriving -and new. small, independent publishing firms continue to be set up.
Analysis examines the publishing business, listens to the views of publishers large and small. and considers the related worlds of bookselling, printing. and the public libraries.
