"This book . . . should be compulsory reading for any information professional who might occasionally be troubled by the inner whisperings of their values and political beliefs."
—Adrian Cunningham, Australian Academic & Research Libraries (June 2007)
"This is one of the few texts in our field which really makes you think deeply about the issues underlying our work and reminds us of why we are obliged to take archives and records very seriously indeed."
—Archives, Journal of the British Society of Archivists (2007)
"Each of the essays in this book is a compelling case study demonstrating how to cope with both the powers of the record and the political pressure by governmental and non-governmental powers in any society. Reading this book and discussing the issues will strengthen the moral sensitivity and professional ethos of every archivist and recordkeeping professional."
—Eric Ketelaar, University of Amsterdam, and Honorary Professor, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia
