Aloha and welcome!

I am a Full Professor in the Library and Information Science Program, which is part of the Information and Computer Sciences Department at the University of Hawaii.

My research is focused on international, interdisciplinary and comparative inquiry into censorship, intellectual freedom (access to information as a human right), international librarianship, literacy, the history of books and libraries, nationalism, book burning, genocide, and the link between extremism and cultural destruction.

For information about my lastest book, Children's Literature and British Identity: Imagining a People and a Nation, please refer to thepublications page.

You can also find information about my other books, Libricide: The Regime-Sponsored Destruction of Books and Libraries in the 20th Century and Burning Books and Leveling Libraries: Extremist Violence and Cultural Destruction, in the same location.
