From the Publisher“Publishing as a Vocation is engrossing. While each was written sui generis, together they constitute a set of snapshots of the revolutionary communication situation we face today.” —Howard Schneiderman, (Anthropology & Sociology) Lafayette College “Publishing as a Vocation is Olympian, but at the same time a down and dirty view on publishing. The last chapter with its case studies was a brilliant way to bring it all to closure.” —Ray C. Rist, (Knowledge & Evaluation) The World Bank "Publishing as a Vocation is illuminating and thorough in its details. It presents publishing matters like a mathematical theory, with hypothesis, thesis and demonstration.” —Lalo Schifrin, (Composer and Conductor) Beverly Hills, California.
“Publishing as Vocation is most impressive in bridging with incisive analysis the ancient craft of publishing and the modern world of digital production. It is a marvelous job of combining moral exhortation and the discipline of economic reality.” —James E. Katz, School of Communication and Information, Rutgers University “[A] lucid and penetrating analysis of what is happening in the publishing world, especially in the United States of course, but aslso—by ricochet—in Europe.” —John Taylor, author of the series Paths to Contemporary French Literature “I Feel compelled to write you to remark upon, first the extraordinary value I believe this book offers those entering and neophytes in t he modern publishing world. In this period of such radical technological change – and very possibly modifications of editorial standards and content – the words of an old and successful hand can only be of immense use as they seek to make t heir way in a sea of uncertainty.” —Richard Abel
