This thesis aims to extend the understanding of the maintenance of the institutional arrangements especially in the process of resistance to institutional changes, which were caused by a regulatory and a technological discontinuity. By doing that, this thesis addresses research gaps in new instiutional theory. In order to flesh out the resistance to institional change, the Japanese publishing field was considered to be an appropriate reserarch site. This is because the Japanese publishing field has been referred to as one of the "least changeable" industries. Furthermore, in the Japanese publishing industry, different types of environmental discontinuities were brought about. The incumbents resisted those actors leveraging these environmental discontinuites and skeeing to change the institutional arrangements.
