James Raven, a leading historian of the book, offers a fresh and accessible guide to the global study of the production, dissemination and reception of written and printed texts across all societies and in all ages. Students, teachers, researchers and general readers will benefit from the book's investigation of the subject's origins, scope and future direction. Based on original research and a wide range of sources, What is the History of the Book? shows how book history crosses disciplinary boundaries and intersects with literary, historical, media, library, conservation and communications studies. Raven uses examples from around the world to explore different traditions in bibliography, palaeography and manuscript studies. He analyses book history's growing global ambition and demonstrates how the study of reading practices opens up new horizons in social history and the history of knowledge. He shows how book history is contributing to debates about intellectual and popular culture, colonialism and the communication of ideas. The first global, accessible introduction to the field of book history from ancient to modern times, What is the History of the Book? is essential reading for all those interested in one of society's most important cultural artefacts.

The History of the Book in South Asia covers not only the various modern states that make up South Asia today but also a multitude of languages and scripts. For centuries it was manuscripts that dominated book production and circulation, and printing technology only began to make an impact in the late eighteenth century. Print flourished in the colonial period and in particular lithographic printing proved particularly popular in South Asia both because it was economical and because it enabled multi-script printing. There are now vibrant publishing cultures in the nation states of South Asia, and the essays in this volume cover the whole range from palm-leaf manuscripts to contemporary print culture.

The book is a chronological exploration of the people and events that have shaped societies through time. From Mesopotamia to Mao, the Incas to Iraq, the Spartans to the Space Shuttle, this history book covers it all. The History Book squeezes together 3,500 years of bloody battles, glorious empires, revolting revolutions, monstrous monarchs, and so much more. It gives everything a good shake and a couple of twists, so the important bits are all there, but the fun stuff rises to the top. Explore the copper, bronze, and iron ages through some heavy metal merchandize, check out the flash crib of Persian emperor Darius I, pick your barbarian warrior in a beat 'em up videogame, and read Napoleon's profile on a social networking site. A cartoon strip retells the horrors of the black death, a news anchorman presents the headlines as the heads roll in the French Revolution, and graffiti on the Berlin Wall details the collapse of communism. Organized chronologically, date tags on every spread aid easy navigation. At the start of each chapter, there is an overview of the period with a map highlighting where all the main action took place. Key movers and shakers are listed and a cultural barometer details what's hot and what's not. A reference section at the back can be edited to suit local market needs.
