AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Colin Golvan discusses the imbalance of negotiating positions between publishers and writers, especially inexperienced writers. He concludes: 'Until our writers cultivate an active interest and involvement in the legal processes attaching to publication, then I believe that the notion of contractual fairness in publishing agreements will remain altogether unachievable' (240).
