This historic and important work is based on a series of papers presented at the 1998 International Federation of Library Associations conference in Paris. The work contains 26 essays focusing on the effects the Cold War had on Western and Communist libraries, publishers, cultural diplomacy, political censorship and the freedom to read. As a whole, this well-written work illuminates one of the most turbulent eras of library history. Published by the Center for the Book, Library of Congress.
