Book Review: The Book Collection, 55 Law Library Journal 266 (1962)
This is the third volume in the series;
the previous two volumes were also reviewed
in this Journal by this reviewer. It is a
pleasure to have the opportunity again to
call attention to this series as well as to
this particular volume.
The author presents an excellent introduction
to the book entitled "Why People
Read." This is followed by twenty-five
"cases" and an Appendix containing one
additional "case" with two illustrative
Law Librarians will find particularly interesting
the situations which deal with
the problem of censorship. While this
problem is most acute in the public library
field, it is important to all librarians, not
only as librarians but as citizens.
