Capital Letters : The Economics of Academic Bookselling, Paperback / softback Book

Capital Letters : The Economics of Academic Bookselling Paperback / softback

Part of the Elements in Publishing and Book Culture series


Academic bookselling inhabits a landscape fundamentally impacted by legislative and political pressure, colonised by new textual forms and new publishing ventures, experiencing constant change.

Capital Letters defines the academic bookshop, text, and market, examining change drivers in the UK, the USA and Asia.

Drawing on current research, inclusive of commercial publishers and publishing interest groups, Capital Letters also includes quantitative and qualitative research data from academic booksellers.

In evaluating the response of academic bookshops to the changing landscape, Capital Letters argues that academic booksellers can understand, shape, and lead a sustainable and equitable future for academic text within the marketplace.
