This collection of essays discusses contemporary publishing in Australia—a trade that generates nearly $2 billion annually—while analyzing the structure and dynamics of the industry in the context of social, cultural, and legal forces. Diligent focus is paid to key topics such as the culture of an average Australian publishing house, the decline of literary publishing, and the impact of new technologies on the industry. Discussions on the publishing of specific genres—from romance and crime fiction to poetry and feminist literature—are also included.
