The twentieth century brought new horizons to Oxford University Press as offices were opened in the United States (in 1896), Canada, Australia, India, Pakistan, East Asia, and Africa. Wm. Roger Louis and 22 expert contributors explore the growth of OUP's publishing, not only in works of scholarship and religion, but also in dictionaries, reference works, and literature for general readers, and in publishing for education and English language teaching. They trace OUP's relationship with the University and city of Oxford, and its place in London and the international book trade. The volume also considers the technological revolution that led to the decline of the printing business in Oxford, and the new challenges of managing a much larger organization.
