Throughout Manga in America, Casey Brienza makes a convincing case for the relevance of looking at manga as a case study in transnational publishing, bringing together contemporary topics for scholars in book publishing, comics publishing, and culture industries in general. Working primarily with qualitative information emerging from interviews with industry insiders, Brienza’s book presents an informative introduction followed by six topical chapters, a conclusion, a methodological appendix, and a helpful glossary.
