MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jean-Noel Jeanneney is horrified when he imagines how our children might come to see the world: Will future generations think no great books have been written in a language other than English? And even worse: Will they see history only through American eyes?
The president of the French national library has made himself the frontman in what he sees as a struggle to save cultural diversity. In the postmodern world, the battleground is the internet. Here, search engines determine what tomorrow''s generations will click on, learn and think."--"Financial Times"

"A take on world Googleization you''re not likely to get from your broker. . . . [Jeanneney] brings his own high-wattage bulb to enlighten us. Be thankful we didn''t ban French fries, French wine, and this very illuminating French book."--;i>Philadelphia Inquirer"
--Carlin Romano "Philadelphia Inquirer "
Provides a crucial dissenting opinion. . . . The Google war chest has all but secured dominance over smaller library efforts, like the author s own project to digitize the French national collection. History judges societies by how they treat their most disadvantaged members. This book asks only that the Google economy be held to the same standard.
