Abstract

Reviews and Remarks 275 libraries are under access services, we possess a unique opportunity to foster development of personnel and help to encourage members of diverse back- grounds and underserved populations to pursue careers in librarianship. This, in turn, will help encourage the development of library services for all members of the community. Durrani’s writings are unapologetically an- ticapitalist and unequivocally socialist in philosophy. Although these ideas are unpopular with many in the United States, his words should be read with an open mind. Our society needs to question whether some classes of people are being exploited for profit, and if this truly constitutes “freedom and justice for all.” Durrani’s experience has taught him that democracy does not bring true independence for all members of a society. At the very least, access services librarians should read this eye-opening work for its unique perspective and its lessons in history and society, with an eye toward what they can do by acting at a local level.
