Review of Shiraz Durrani’s Information and Liberation
The new issue of the SRRT Newsletter has a review of Shiraz Durrani’s book, Information and Liberation: Writings on the Politics of Information and Librarianship. Jenny Bossaller, an Assistant Professor of Library and Information Science at University of Southern Mississippi, wrote the review. It’s a thoughtful piece, which I always like to see. Thanks to Dr. Bossaller for writing it. I do want to add a bit of info that was not present in the review, which is Dr. Durrani’s present position as a senior lecturer at the library school at London Metropolitan University. While it is not incorrect to refer to him as a librarian (once a librarian, always a librarian), his job now is just as a scholar and teacher. For some that might make a difference in how his book is viewed.
