AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In 2001 the publishing and printing industries produced a landmark report on Book Production in Australia: A Joint Industry Study (JIS), funded by the Commonwealth. (For a brief summary of the JIS findings on the printing industry, see Chapter 7.) The publishing component, coordinated by respected consultant and former publisher Bill Mackarell, was arguably the most thorough analysis of the book publishing industry ever undertaken.The JIS surveyed a total of twenty-six publishers, including the major trade houses such as Penguin, Random and HarperCollins as the big educational firms including Pearson, Reed, Nelson and Wiley, although small publishers — and Australian-owned houses (often one and the same) — were under-represented.' (Introduction 85)
