Eric Moon : the life and library times by Kenneth F Kister( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eric Moon, a progressive, even radical librarian who for more than fifty years has served his profession as goad and prod, devoted practitioner, gutsy journalist, magnanimous publisher, revered and resented association leader, smug antagonist, beloved mentor and antic crony, has been at the center of almost every important debate involving the shape and direction of the library profession in North America from the late 1950s to well into the 1990s and before that for some years in England." "This biography has been written with the help of the author's 115 hours of interviews with Eric and his wife, Ilse, and over 50 hours with dozens of friends and associates. The result is a balanced, unbiased and unvarnished account of Anglo-American ambition, achievement, failure and, above all, service."--BOOK JACKET
