Editorial Reviews

Review

.a necessary, important and long-overdue book., SHINE Journal
This is by far the best book I have read on librarianship for a very long time., John Pateman, Head of Libraries, Learning and Inclusion, Lincolnshire County Council
Inspiring, affirming, activating, energizing, I ran out of superlatives to describe this book. If you are a library worker who wants to change the world, read it today - because tomorrow may already be too late., John Pateman, Head of Libraries, Learning and Inclusion, Lincolnshire County Council

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By kathleen on March 23, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book should be required reading for all librarians. As a teacher of librarians it will be required reading for all my students. With this book Dr. Samek provides hope and passion for library workers too long constrained by the myth of 'neutrality.' Librarianship and Human Rights is a watershed work of scholarship and passion.
