Boosey & Hawkes:
The publishing story

by Helen Wallace

A lively and detailed history from the 1930 merger to the present day.
Published 2007 (paperback) 244 pages, 150 illustrations

"A ripping yarn of a novel, if not a grand opera... Wallace's racy digest shows us how backroom businessmen continue to shape musical history."
Financial Times

"...a surprisingly gripping narrative. For those who wonder what really goes on in music publishing, it offers a fascinating read."
BBC Music Magazine
