Open Access Graduate Research Paper
In a speech to the New York Society of Security Analysts in 1960, Bennett Cerf stated, "It is my opinion that the publishing business is at a sort of crossroads right now. The cards are being dealt, and amalgamations and mergers are being effected that will play a decisive factor in the entire publishing business for decades to come. It is my belief that within the next few years, some five or six great publishing companies will dominate the publishing scene, much the way that a handful of companies today dominate steel, automobiles, and other truly big industries. We intend that Random House will be one of these larger companies."1
