DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Where does the book belong? Does it enshrine the soul of a nation, or is it a means by which nations talk to one another, sharing ideas, technologies and texts? This book, the first in a two-volume set of original essays, responds to these questions with archive-based case studies of print culture in New Zealand, South and East Africa, Bulgaria, North America, Germany, Brazil, Scotland, the Caribbean, Mauritius and the Philippines.
