"The History of Reading" offers an engaging, accessible overview from the rise of literacy through to the current trend of 'book clubs'. Divided into seven sections, each with a useful introduction, this Reader: summarises the main debates and perspectives shaping the field; introduces key theorists such as Iser, Fish and Bakhtin; surveys influential works and outlines important studies on mass reading; focuses on specific communities such as Welsh miners, African American library users and Australian convicts; looks at individual readers from a variety of countries, classes and historical periods; and, considers current research in the history of reading. Providing both a clear introduction to the history of the field and a taster of the breadth, diversity and vitality of current debates, this Reader is an essential resource for undergraduates, graduates, and researchers.
