Peter Burke: Knowledge Is Still Power
This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
Peter Burke’s new volume of A Social History of Knowledge picks up where the first left off, around 1750, at the publication of the French Encyclopédie, and follows the story all the way through to Wikipedia. Focussing on groups, institutions, collective practices and general trends rather than individuals, he delivers an impressive range of scholarship through entertainingly accessible prose.
