This work presents the history and impact of the seven most important progressive library organizations worldwide—in Austria, Germany, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, and two in the United States. Each organization is considered within its national context, and in fact, the English word “organization” does not quite fit the nature of all of the groups. The South African organization, LIWO, was transitional in that it helped bring South African librarianship from apartheid to majority rule and then disbanded. The other organizations or their successors are still working in one form or another. Some of the organizations have had or continue to have vibrant local chapters, though many of the original activists have recently retired or died. The author has interviewed many of them at a time when they were assessing their life work, and handing off to new generations.

Shattering any idea that librarianship is a politically neutral realm, this insider’s account of seven debates from the floor of the American Library Association Council illustrates the mechanisms the governing body used to maintain the status quo on issues like racism, government surveillance and climate change. At play in each debate are rules of parliamentary procedure, appeals to authority, denial, and chastisement of librarians who pushed the ALA to make real its commitments to human rights and social justice. Providing a fascinating look at the Council’s inner workings, the author parses debates concerning anti-apartheid boycotts; partnerships between ALA, McDonald’s and the Boy Scouts of America; spying by the National Security Agency; censorship in Israel and the Occupied Territories; fossil fuel industry divestment; and the recent revival by ALA’s Office of Intellectual Freedom of the infamous film The Speaker.

Profiling "notable leaders of the library profession," this volume is meant as an addendum to two preceding volumes of profiles, published in 1978 and 1990. The largely American profilees were chosen for their work in public, academic, and archival library practice. The majority of them died between July of 1987 and December of 2000, although some are included in order to correct perceived omissions from the earlier volumes.
