In 1450 very few English men or women were personally familiar with a book; by 1850, the great majority of people daily encountered books, magazines, or newspapers. This book explores the history of this fundamental transformation, from the arrival of the printing press to the coming of steam. James Raven presents a lively and original account of the English book trade and the printers, booksellers, and entrepreneurs who promoted its development. Viewing print and book culture through the lens of commerce, Raven offers a new interpretation of the genesis of literature and literary commerce in England. He draws on extensive archival sources to reconstruct the successes and failures of those involved in the book trade—a cast of heroes and heroines, villains, and rogues. And, through groundbreaking investigations of neglected aspects of book-trade history, Raven thoroughly revises our understanding of the massive popularization of the book and the dramatic expansion of its markets over the centuries.

The Business of Books

Part-memoir, part-history, here is an account of the collapsing standards of contemporary publishing that is irascible, acute and passionate.

Author: André Schiffrin

Post-war American publishing has been ruthlessly transformed since Andre Schiffrin joined its ranks in 1956. Gone is a plethora of small but prestigious houses that often put ideas before profit in their publishing decisions, sometimes even deliberately. Now six behemoths share 80% of the market and profit margin is all. Andre Schiffrin can write about these changes with authority because he witnessed them from inside a conglomerate, as head of Pantheon, co-founded by his father, bought (and sold) by Random House. And he can write about them with candor because he is no longer on the inside, having quit corporate publishing in disgust to set up a flourishing independent house, The New Press. Schiffrin's evident affection for his authors sparkles throughout a story woven around publishing the work of those such as Studs Terkel, Noam Chomsky, Gunnar Myrdal, George Kennan, Juliet Mitchell, R.D.Laing, Eric Hobsbawm and E.P.Thompson. Part-memoir, part-history, here is an account of the collapsing standards of contemporary publishing that is irascible, acute and passionate. An engaging counterpoint to recent, celebratory memoirs of the industry written by those with more stock options and fewer scruples than Schiffrin, The Business of Books warns of the danger to adventurous, intelligent publishing in the bullring of today's marketplace.

In this, my second book of a series of six, I cover the valuation of businesses - not theory, just real life, and you'd be surprised how many people (brokers and accountants) who should know better really don't know how buyers value businesses . I write in a succinct way from a practitioner's point of view. I am a leading UK corporate financier with over 25 year's experience of advising business owners on buying and selling companies to larger companies and to private equity buyers.My books are easy to read and will give a business owner practical ways of selling their business. I also highlight the pitfalls to watch out for when dealing with buyers and indeed your own advisors. My books are intended to help business owners sell their businesses themselves should they choose to do so, thereby avoiding large unnecessary fees or at least have a better experience using advisors thereby maximising the chances of selling and maximising the price. Uniquely (I think), I also offer a totally free email response service to any questions you may have that might be specific to your own business in connection to any aspect of selling a business. It's simply a thank you for buying my book.It isn't formal advice of course that you can rely on but rather some pointers/tips to help you.

It can serve as the basic volume for any course in marine transportation. The topics covered include the significance of marine transportation; government involvement in regulating the industry; tramp shipping; liner service; the passenger cruise business; vessel management; cargo documentation; shoreside activities, such as terminal operations, ship husbandry, and bunkering procedures; and the actual functioning of the many segments of a shipping company operation. The book's scope is broader and more attuned to the working of the industry than most other books on marine transportation. While a good deal of the material from the sixth edition has been retained, new and up-to-date information has been added to reflect the many recent developments in the industry.

Businesses that produce bioscience products—gene tests and therapies, pharmaceuticals, vaccines, and medical devices—are regularly confronted with ethical issues concerning these technologies. Conflicts exist between those who support advancements in bioscience and those who fear the consequences of unfettered scientific license. As the debate surrounding bioscience grows, it will be increasingly important for business managers to consider the larger consequences of their work. This groundbreaking book follows industry research, development, and marketing of medical and bioscience products across a variety of fields, including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and bio-agriculture. Compelling and current case studies highlight the ethical decisions business managers frequently face. With the increasing visibility and public expectation placed on businesses in this sector, managers need to understand the ethical and social issues. This book addresses that need and provides a framework for incorporating ethical analysis in business decision making.
