Product Overview

Linking the study of business and politics, Christine Haynes reconstructs the passionate and protracted debate over the development of the book trade in nineteenth-century France. Haynes shows how publishers succeeded in transforming the industry from a tightly controlled trade to a free enterprise, with dramatic but paradoxical consequences for literature in France. In tracing the contest over literary production in France, Haynes emphasizes the role of the Second Empire in enabling - but also in limiting - press freedom and literary property.
