Alternative Publishers Of Books In North America, 6th Edition by Byron Anderson
This directory is a unique reference tool that gathers information on significant alternative presses and places this under one cover. The presses profiled were culled from hundreds of small, active independent presses, building on the effort of the previous five editions of the directory. In total, one will find 126 U.S. presses, nineteen Canadian, and eighteen international presses having either a North American address or distributor. Thirty-three presses are new to this edition. The sense of the word "alternative" here indicates a connection to some part of the political left. The information in this book attempts to educate and bring more awareness of alternative presses to librarians and others interested in these publications. Librarians can clearly benefit from the directory when the publications are incorporated into the library's collection as well as its collection development procedures to expand the diversity of the collection and fill-in gaps.
