"Wallace makes an important contribution to the knowledge management (KM) literature by explicating KM within a rich historical and multidisciplinary context. Organized by thematic chapters ranging from epistemology to systems thinking and learning organizations to taxonomies to KM itself, the book relies on key papers for each. While some papers, like Adrianna Kezars work on organizational learning, are omitted, overall Wallace is thorough. Wallaces carefully detailed discussions and numerous references to the primary KM literature in many disciplines make the book well suited for a library science and/or KM textbook....Highly recommended for library science, organizational development, knowledge management, and related academic library collections." - Library Journal
"Beginning with a discussion on the history of the use of the term knowledge management, the author proceeds in great detail to examine the literature of epistemology, especially as it relates to organizing and disseminating knowledge for use. Each chapter begins with key term definitions and is divided into easily digestible chunks. This is for those interested in the theory of knowledge and knowledge management." - Library Media Connection
"This collection of easy-to-understand essays on previously published complex works from 1928 through 1999 is presented by a professor in the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Oklahoma, making the field approachable for novices. This work is intended for all students of knowledge management and closely related fields as well as knowledge management practitioners who want to place the field in context. . . . An extremely useful addition to any collection serving a population that studies or uses knowledge management, this work brings the often dry and hard-to-understand original writings to life with commentary and interpretation by an instructor of the field." - ARBA
