‘Angus & Robertson and the British exchange in Australian Books, 1930–1970’ strains the historical past of the broadcast e-book in Australia, really the construction and enterprise context that mediated Australia’s literary and cultural ties to Britain for far of the 20th century. This learn specializes in the London operations of 1 of Australia’s prime booklet publishers of the 20 th century: Angus & Robertson. The publication argues that regardless of the most obvious boundaries of a British-dominated industry, Australian publishers had room to manoeuvre in it. It questions the ways that Angus & Robertson replicated, challenged or reworked the customarily hugely criticised advertisement practices of British publishers in an effort to strengthen an export exchange for Australian books within the uk. This publication is the reply to the present void within the literary marketplace for a considerable heritage of Australia’s greatest writer and its position within the improvement of Australia’s export e-book trade.
