Acerca de


An engaging history of book burning and its cultural significance, focusing on the notorious Nazi burnings while exploring the broader history of the destruction of books by fire


'Matthew Fishburn offers an original and often disturbing perspective on a dark chapter in literary history. He has a genius for drawing unexpected connections and he writes with the kind of elegance that was long ago banished from most academic books.' - Professor Jonathan Rose, author of The Intellectual Life of the British Working Classes and editor of The Holocaust and the Book

'A fascinating chronicle. What makes Burning Books so impressive is the author's going well beyond the usual instances.' - John Sutherland, The Times

'The book is supported by an excellent bibliography and notes, and there is a fine selection of reproduced posters, cartoons and photographs which enhance the value of the text.' - John Crawford, Library and Information History

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
