Book Description
First published in 1971 (by Scarecrow Press), Prejudices and Antipathies marked the opening salvo in the fight to rid the Library of Congress Subject Headings of bias. In the ensuing 22 years, many of its recommendations have been embraced. Still, Christocentrism permeates LC, racially-tinged "Oriental" and "primitive" headings abound, reminding the profession of the progress made and problems that persist. The McFarland edition includes a foreword, a new preface and an index.
