Revolting Librarians (double entendre very much intended!) came out 31 years ago, in 1972, when the 1960s were in full swing. An early example of desktop publishing, it had a red cover and sold for only two dollars! Library Journal
called it "highly readable fun." Library Resources & Technical Services
(LRTS) was more hesitant, describing the book as "a statement of discontent with almost every aspect of the American library establishment" that offered little practical guidance. These comments apply just as well to this Festschrift in honor of the first edition. The red cover is gone, and the cost has risen to $35. But 56 contributors, many returning from the first edition, rant and rave in a friendly, nostalgic style. It may not change much, but it's a fun read. RBBCopyright © American Library Association.

"Revolting librarians are't defined by what they are, they are defined by what they do. In fact, it's not even what they do, but how they do it" - Katia Roberto and Jessamyn West, in the Preface.
