This new volume in UQP's History of the Book in Australia series explores Australian book production and consumption from 1946 to the present day.


Will Australia's once booming book industry be replaced by e-publishing? Are independent publishers and booksellers on the way out? In a world where one 'mega-author' can sell millions of books, can anyone else compete?

Paper Empires
tells the inside story of Australian publishing over the past half-century. It begins with the larrikin pioneers of the 1950s and 60s and follows the fortunes of the independents and multinationals that followed in their wake. With dozens of in-depth profiles of book trade identities and their companies, as well as many themed case studies, Paper Empires explores the myths and traces the interconnected histories of book publishing, bookselling and reading.

Paper Empires is a must-read for anyone with an interest in the business of books. (Also available in paperback)
