ANTHEM PUBLISHING STUDIES
The Anthem Publishing Studies series aims to publish high-quality research monographs, imaginative and innovative textbooks, and ‘intellectual’ trade titles that explore publishing and the book trade at large: the authors, editors, publishers, booksellers and librarians who together produce, disseminate, and preserve the world's knowledge and culture through books, periodicals, and digital media.
These works address a general, student and academic audience through their relevance, rigour and readability, and serve as a critical interchange for all participants in the book world – creators and consumers alike.
Our titles have earned an excellent reputation for the originality and diligence of their scholarship and the high quality of their production.
