'Exhaustively researched and taking the reader through a social and technological revolution, this second volume is hugely impressive.' Cambridge: The Magazine of the Cambridge Society 'Not for nothing is Cambridge now regarded as one of the world's pre-eminent academic publishers. An advantage of the kind of long view taken here is an ability to convey a sense of the way in which such an imprint attains, over generations, the level of recognition that makes it what it is today. ... Academic editors everywhere should read this volume. ... At a moment when there appears to be increasing anxiety in certain quarters about the commercialization of academic publishing, this book comes as a timely reminder that it was ever thus.' Times Literary Supplement
