'...a remarkable account of the Packer family...painstakingly researched...will enthral anyone with an interest in the media'. - Kate de Brito, The Daily Telegraph Australia's richest man, Kerry Packer, came to the helm of Australian Consolidated Press a quarter of a century ago; in recent years his son, James, has begun taking over the reins of the group. But despite the legendary reputation of Kerry Packer and his father Sir Frank, and the popular fascination with young James, the story of the creation of the family dynasty has never been told. This compelling book unravels, for the first time, Frank Packer's Machiavellian deals that resulted in the launch of the Australian Women's Weekly in 1933. From there it charts the production of the Daily and Sunday Telegraphs, the Nine network, the Bulletin and Cleo. The House of Packer moves seamlessly from the bohemia of the newsroom to the intrigue of the boardroom; from the rumbustious style of celebrated editors to the feudalism of Sir Frank; from the bitter condemnation of political enemies to at times bizarre territorial disputes with the Fairfax and Murdoch dynasties.

This new volume in UQP's History of the Book in Australia series explores Australian book production and consumption from 1946 to the present day. In the immediate postwar era, most books were imported into a colonial market dominated by British publishers. Paper Empires traces this fascinating and volatile half-century, using wide-ranging research, oral history and memoir to explore the worlds of book publishing, selling and reading. After 1945, Australian publishing went from a handful of fledgling businesses to the billion dollar industry of today with thousands of new titles each year and a vast array of imported books. Publishing's postwar expansion began with the baby boom and the increased demand for school texts, with independent houses blossoming during the 1960s and 70s followed by the current era dominated by global conglomerates. All aspects of print culture are explored, from authorship and editing to bookselling, libraries and reading habits, in the context of today's rapidly changing publishing landscape with its many technological challenges. A wide range of expert contributors, including book-trade practitioners, have produced this lively and indispensable account of our vital cultural industry.
