From the Library

A fascinating subject and a book filled with exhaustive detail which makes it one of the slower reads… but never boring.  The author has done so much research on this subject and it’s full of the struggles between publishers and the Government over the paper ration, the difference between literature to send overseas to help the war effort and out-and-out propaganda, etc.  There’s an interesting chapter on publishing overseas before, during and just after the War, and the book includes excellent photographs and appendixes.  Very glad this passed through my hands at work and I could secure it for a read!
