Imagine An America

Sun Sep 18, 2005

Where the equivalent of Critique of Cynical Reason sells 40,000 copies in its first few months. I don’t think Empire compares well, but what were its American sales figures? There were about 60 million people in West Germany when it was published, so that’d roughly 200,000 copies here now.

I’ve heard that the publishing industry hoards its exact sales figures like the sea. Does anyone know of a quick reference for checking this data?
