The author is clearly knowledgeable about libraries and the historical contexts in which the great libraries evolved (and many ultimately fell) but he doesn't structure...

Rise and Fall of Libraries

by ricklibrarian (WorldCat 사용자가 게시함 2005-12-03) 좋음 퍼머링크
I am a bit surprised by Library: An Unquiet History by Matthew Battles. The author writes a well balanced history until he reaches the twentieth century, including many of the main developments in the concept of the library. Libraries in ancient Alexandria, ancient China, Jewish synagogues, mosques,...

Battles explores how, throughout its many changes, the library has served two contradictory impulses: on the one hand, the urge to exalt canons of literature, to secure and worship the best and most beautiful words; on the other, the desire to contain and control all forms of human knowledge."--BOOK JACKET."
