Reviews
"Andre Schiffrin is an old-fashioned New York publisher, the sort that loves and believes in books. Not just best-sellers, but little books with big ideas."--The Times [London]

"André Schiffrin presents a somber portrait of American publishing where the pursuit of profit has strangled all creativity."--Nouvel Observateur

"Newsworthy and important, eloquent, smart, thoughtful, and well-presented."--The Nation

"An absorbing account of the revolution in publishing during the last decade."--Financial Times

"Forceful evidence that corporate insistence on higher profits has been cultural and business folly."--Business Week
