基本説明

New in paperback. Hardcover was published in 2010.
前著”Books in the Digital Age”で学術出版の世界と電子化のインパクトを詳しく論じた社会学者が、今度は文芸・一般書の世界の地殻変動を報告する。
In this book - the first major study of trade publishing for more than 30 years - Thompson situates the current challenges facing the industry in an historical context, analyzing the transformation of trade publishing in the United States and Britain since the 1960s. He gives a detailed account of how the world of trade publishing really works, dissecting the roles of publishers, agents and booksellers and showing how their practices are shaped by a field that has a distinctive structure and dynamic. Against this backdrop Thompson analyzes the impact of the digital revolution on book publishing and examines the pressures that are reshaping the field of trade publishing today.
