AbstractCommunicating Ideas is the "second expanded edition," released in a paperback by Transaction Publishers, of a book first issued by Oxford University Press in 1986 under the alternate subtitle The Crisis of Publishing in a Post-Industrial Society. Although the subject, scholarly communication, is of interest to academic librarians, the way that the book has been assembled exemplifies some of the more troubling aspects of academic publishing today.
