Abstract
This report is a detailed history of New Star Books and considers the following: the context of its founding in terms of the political movements of the times; changes in editorial choices based on the publisher; the introduction of a new imprint with a place-based focus in the mid 1990s; the obstacles faced in setting up sales and distribution agreements; and the difficulties faced by an independent publishing house in a challenging market. This report will then conclude with an overview of the publishing house and its impact on Canadian publishing history.
