From the Publisher"Certain to become required reading for anyone interested in books, book publishing, and/or print culture in postwar America. . . . This one's definitely a keeper."
-Publishing Research Quarterly
"What the History of the Book series shows so clearly is that the world we know, the communities to which we already belong, are reified and reinforced by books. Such is the incredible and incredibly flexible power of this primitive technology. Behold the book: It is limited but perfect."
"Magisterial scholarship, compelling writing, and extraordinary range….The Enduring Book functions successfully on a number of intellectual scales. Scholars interested in American print culture will find this book invaluable."
-The Journal of American History
"A model of scholarly publication and institutional cooperation. . . . A timely achievement and a great one. . . . Without university presses, we would still be waiting for HBA."
-Journal of Scholarly Publishing
"A very readable and insightful account. . . . This volume and the series will be standards for a long time. . . . Essential."
