“This collection of Graff’s essays describes and justifies literacy in ways that consider traditional as well as newly recognized, technological views of literacy.”
—R. Roth, Choice


In his latest writings on the history of literacy and its importance for present understanding and future rethinking, historian Harvey J. Graff continues his critical revisions of many common ideas among scholars and others. The eight wide-ranging and diverse essays speak to central concerns about the place of literacy in modern and late-modern culture and society, and its complicated historical foundations.
