"Reflecting the entire range of human experience, the book is a physical embodiment and manifestation of our civilization, and through the course of our nation's history, the book has been a cornerstone in the shaping of American culture. The fascinating role that books have played in the creation of our nation and society is notably the story of authors, printers and publishers who have created books. It is also the story of readers who have shaped our culture in response to what they read. Richard W. Clement brings to life the story of the book in America from 1638 to today." -- Publisher's description
