Petra Hardt, Foreign Rights Director at Suhrkamp Verlag has recently published an English translation of Rights: Buying. Protecting. Selling, her now-classic rights guide for publishers.
With 32 years of experience in the German book industry, Hardt was motivated to write the book after she realized one important factor in ensuring Suhrkamp’s success: ‘It’s because of the kind of contract. That is unequivocal and clear. With this contract we’ve been able to remain independent for 60 years.’”
Called “undeniably of interest to small and independent publishers in the US and Canada,” by Publishing Perspectives, this book is a perfect reference not only for staff in rights departments, but also for editors, authors, translators, and other rights holders.
