Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on development of the great Dutch scientific publishing houses. It looks at the causes of this occupation - causes that must be sought within Germany itself. What enabled the emergence of Elsevier and North-Holland was that publishing houses such as Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft and Springer-Verlag were destroyed by the Germans themselves, as a result of racial policies and the war in which the Nazis had swept them away. The chapter addresses relationships, and interventions. It goes back in history - first of all, to the ruins of Berlin. The war has ended two years ago, but much of the city is still uncleared. The badly damaged premises of Springer-Verlag near Potsdamer Platz have been provided with a temporary new roof, windows and doors, and part of the book stock has actually been salvaged from the rubble.

Keywords: Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft; Dutch scientific publishing; Springer-Verlag
