Contents Introduction -- Theorizing domestication : manga and the transnational production of culture -- Book trade : the history and structure of American manga publishing -- License to produce : founding companies, negotiating rights -- Working from home : translators, editors, letterers, and other invisibles -- Off the page : new manga publishing models for a digital future -- Conclusion : making manga American.
Summary "Drawing on extensive field research and interviews with industry insiders about licensing deals, processes of translation, adaptation, and marketing, new digital publishing and distribution models, and more, Brienza shows that the transnational production of culture is an active, labor-intensive and oft-contested process of 'domestication.' Ultimately, Manga in America argues that the domestication of manga reinforces the very same imbalances of national power that might otherwise seem to have been transformed by it and that the success of Japanese manga in the United States actually serves to make manga everywhere more American." -- Back of book.
