She first looks at the use of biblioclasm as a tactic of political or ethnic protest at the local level. Next, she discusses the purging of libraries in the aftermath of power struggles in Germany, Afghanistan, and Cambodia. The final three chapters consider the fate of libraries when war creates a power vacuum--with special attention paid to the looting of Iraq's cultural institutions in 2003."@en
