Jason Epstein talked about his book Book Business: Publishing: Past, Present, and Future, published by W.W. Norton and Co. Mr. Epstein focused on the ways electronic publishing would continue to impact the book industry and provided an anecdotal history of publishing and book retailing in the United States over the last 150 years. He also focused on his own career to provide examples of the changes that have occurred in the last 50 years.

    C-SPAN.org offers links to books featured on the C-SPAN networks to make it simpler for viewers to purchase them. C-SPAN has agreements with retailers that share a small percentage of your purchase price with our network. For example, as an Amazon Associate, C-SPAN earns money from your qualifying purchases. However, C-SPAN only receives this revenue if your book purchase is made using the links on this page.

    Any revenue realized from this program goes into a general account to help fund C-SPAN operations.

    Please note that questions regarding fulfillment, customer service, privacy policies, or issues relating to your book orders should be directed to the Webmaster or administrator of the specific bookseller's site and are their sole responsibility.
