About meI am a former librarian and late-blooming academic with a focus on late medieval and early modern history. My specific, academic, focus is on the history of violence (in all its varied forms).
About my libraryI own all the books in this library, it is not a wish-list or desiderata (for those checking here to see what I have and do not have). As of January 2010 the collection is about 98% up to date. I'm in the process of adding tags and doing the manual entry on the books I can't find on the LibraryThing sources. *** Note the library also has books I no longer own, they are tagged DEACCESSIONED. I'm doing this so I don't accidentally buy duplicates of things I thought I got rid of or get things I did weed.
