Ranging from an exploration of British and Australian trench journals and the readiong practices of Indian soldiers to the impact of the war on literary figures of the home front in Britain, these essays provide crucial new historical information about the production, circulation and reception of reading matter during a period of international crisis.

    "Any new technology, just like any new idea, requires some understanding not just of what is new, but also of what it replaces. The current revolution in printing and publishing is no different. It offers new ways of doing things, and new ways of thinking. It offers opportunities for creativity and imagination on a scale and by routes of which we are so far scarcely aware. During the past few years there has emerged a considerable literature about the effect on conventional publishing of what is sometimes called the digital age. "--

    At the end of the 18th century, noblemen & revolutionaries spent extravagant sums of money or precious military resources competing to acquire old books, which until then had often been regarded as worthless. These books, called incunabula, achieved cultural & political importance as luxury commodities & as tools for mastering a controversial past. Men of different classes met in a new, shared marketplace, creating a competition for authority, as books were seen not merely as sources of textual information but as tools for controlling the past in the service of contemporary concerns. The old books themselves were often changed to meet new expectations of what important historic objects should be. Focusing on Paris & London, but taking a resolutely pan-European view, this book examines the emergence of this commodity & of a new historical discipline created by traders & craftsmen.
