  • Is the Australian publishing industry flourishing or floundering?
  • What is the future of the book?
  • Has lifestyle replaced literary publishing?

'Leading industry practitioners and academics analyse the industry in the context of social, cultural and legal forces. They write revealingly on the culture of the publishing house, editorial practice and policy, Bookscan, new technologies and the 'decline' of literary publishing.
