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 hardcover)
