Description: From Library Journal
This latest update is a succinct and readable account of the development of libraries within the context of Western civilization. Divided as before into three sections covering the ancient world, the medieval period, and the modern era, Harris's account is well organized and informative. This edition includes recent developments such as the reunification of Germany. The European treatment emphasizes Britain, France, Italy, and Germany, with little mention of Scandinavia, Iberia, or eastern Europe except Russia. U.S. libraries form the bulk of the American chapters, with nods to Canada and Latin America. The text is expanded from the 1984 compact edition (Professional Reading, LJ 8/84) but is shorter than the 1976 third revised edition; the typography is much improved. There are good reading lists for each chapter but no footnotes or complete bibliography. Recommended.?Elizabeth Brice, Miami Univ. Libs., Oxford, Ohio

Product Description:
This edition of the "History of Libraries in the Western World" represents a substantial revision of the earlier edition, taking into account the "information revolution" that has swept the West since 1945 and the political revolution that swept across Europe beginning in 1986. In addition, recent scholarship has been incorporated throughout the text, with special emphasis on the work centered around the "new history of the book." The bibliographies at the end of each of the twelve chapters have been thoroughly revised to reflect the very considerable new work on library and book history.
