And as written records came to predominate in England they seemed to cause as many problems as they alleviated. My only qualms with this text come from the writing itself. Practical literacy for the all people was not really a thing until the 1800s or so, but it's become so entrenched in the way that we think about things and about the way we define what makes an educated individual that reading this book is a really fascinating and eye-opening experience. From Memory to Written Record is clearly academic, and as such, tends to follow the overstuffed, seemingly intentionally convoluted way of talking about something that one finds in dissertations.
The introduction discusses the history of literacy up to the present day; the guide to further reading brings together over 300 new titles up to 1992.
