This Business of Publishing by Richard Curtis ( )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
THIS BUSINESS OF PUBLISHING has been hailed by literary agent Michael Larsen as "must reading for writers, agents and anyone else who cares about the future of publishing." It reveals the unique perspective of Richard Curtis, former president of the Association of Authors' Representatives. He provides the aspiring author with the benefit of over thirty years of lessons learned in the publishing industry, including: the damage caused to the publishing industry by the archaic practice of selling books on consignment; the changing nature of the wholesale business, and how it affects authors, editors and agents; the way that large corporate mergers of publishing companies have brought about the disenfranchisement of authors and editors; the electronic media revolution and the opportunities it offers, as well as the pitfalls. Curtis talks about the "blockbuster mentality" that currently dominates publisher thinking, leading to increased dependence on a few overpaid authors with big-name market status. This is an engaging and thoroughly readable guidebook to one of the most rapidly changing industries in America. It is an essential reference work for anyone hoping to understand or function in the publishing world

Social networks, drug injectors' lives, and HIV/AIDS by Samuel R Friedman ( Book )
2 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Social Networks, Drug Injectors' Lives, and HIV/AIDS recognizes HIV as a socially structured disease - its transmission usually requires intimate contact between individuals - and shows how social networks shape high-risk behaviors and the spread of HIV. The authors recount the groundbreaking use of social network methods, ethnographic direct-observation techniques, and in-depth interviews in their study of a drug-using community in Brooklyn, New York. They provide a detailed documentary of the lives of community members. They describe drug-use, the affects of poverty and homelessness, the acquisition of money and drugs, and social relationships within the group. Social Networks, Drug Injectors' Lives, and HIV/AIDS shows that social networks and contexts are of crucial importance in understanding and fighting the AIDS epidemic. These findings should revitalize prevention efforts and reshape social policy
