Chapter Summary

Publishing, the process of managing the production and distribution of printed texts, developed from the traditions of printing and bookselling. For the purposes of this book, author has identified two major types of publishers; trade publishing and scholarly and scientific publishing. Entrepreneurial commercial scholarly and scientific publishing emerged in Germany in the twentieth century as an alternative to the traditional model and is a subject of the book. The term international publishing also requires an explanation, because there are differing national and cultural interpretations. The politically conservative Dutch government allowed thousands of German exiles into the country after 1933. The Netherlands had always been a good market for foreign literature, in translation, as well as in the vernacular. The lack of available good literature combined with a large enough number of affluent customers, had made many of the efforts a success.
