Book History has emerged as one of the most exciting new interdisciplinary fields of study in the humanities. By focusing on the production, circulation and reception of the book in all its forms, it has transformed the study of history, literature and culture. From debates in textual scholarship to current discussions about digital media and the futre of the book, The Broadview Reader in Book History is the most complete and up-to-date introduction available to this area of study.

The reader reprints edited versions of key essays in the field, grouped conceptually and provided with headnotes, explanatory footnotes, an introduction, a chronology and a glossary of terms.
