Harvard Historian Nancy Koehn on Amazon's Tentacular ReachHistorians in the News
Amazon is probably still seen as the online bookselling giant that has instilled a permanent sense of unease among booksellers across the world....
As Amazon continues to expand and mutate at an accelerated rate, is it leaving casualties in its wake? A recent article by New Yorker
staff writer George Packer suggests it could be bad for books,
rendering them as invaluable and as "cheap as a sandwich." On Tuesday, Nancy Koehn joined Jim and Margery on Boston Public Radio
to pick up where Packer left off, asking if Amazon's tentacular reach
is too far, too wide, and too powerful for the social good.
