Overview

Because of the increasing convergence of technologies in the entertainment industries, this thoroughly updated and revised Third Edition is also reorganized. The main body of the book is now divided into two parts; Part One deals with general principles and Part Two deals with the specific entertainment related industries. In addition to thoroughly revising and updating the case material, recent changes in the entertainment business - among them innovation, consolidation, internationalization, and inflation - are analyzed in detail, making this new edition a vital resource for students and practitioners in such fields as literary publishing, music publishing, sound recordings, film, television, new technologies, and theatre, and serves as both a text and as a useful reference work.
