Book Review

Book Cover

Alison Rukavina

Rukavina, Alison. The Development of the International Book Trade (1870-1895): Tangled Networks. Macmillan Palgrave (2010)

“Rukavina’s The Development of the International Book Trade concentrates on the relations between London publishers and the Australian book trade at a time when the British Empire is reaching its peak, but the larger implications of these business relationships are never far from her mind. The result is a book that is as daring in its theoretical reflections as it is firmly rooted in painstaking archival research. In the first place, the fundamental conception of her project challenges the limits of previous studies. … The relations she traces among colonial book markets, London publishing houses, and ambitious entrepreneurs who served as indispensable go-betweens points toward the vitality of transnational exchange at the end of the nineteenth century, a trade that foreshadows the growth of a globalized economy in the twentieth century” (Ronald Tetrault 52-3).

‘This is an absolutely first-rate work at the very cutting edge of book history research … It is superbly written. Theoretically as well as empirically sophisticated, it engages intelligently with the most rewarding debates going on in book history at the present time. It is, in fine, a must.”
