Hi Sam, While I love this book and think everyone should read it, I disagree with the idea of having book summaries on Wikipedia (the extreme example being the god-awful Atlas Shrugged mess). We're not the Boston Review of Books, and we're not a bookstore... sure, "all human knowledge", and all that, but I think chapter-by-chapter summaries is stretching it... Graft

no- keep the summary up- it saves me being arsed to getting around to reading it- I like getting it in instalments as well ;-) quercus robur

I'll write you a summary and email it to you myself if you like, but why does it have to be on Wikipedia? Ah, whatever... I withdraw my half-hearted objection. Graft

What about what I did at Homage to Catalonia? --Sam 18:25 Mar 27, 2003 (UTC)

I also think the idea of having short chapter reviews is excellent and represents a very useful tool. So Sam, I'm looking forward to the completion of this particular one! Dear Graft, of course there may be cases in which the result is messy, but this is also true for other types of entries. --Nailu

The photo used is of a 1985 reprint cover. As a result I would assume it to be copyrighted and not usable here. Kricxjo 23:34, 3 Nov 2003 (UTC)

I think it is useable under fair use since this article is a dedicated discussion of the work. --Sam 20:21, 23 Dec 2003 (UTC)

Request Change on information from Footnote (2)[edit]

The passage says that the English language version of "The Conquest of Bread " was published in London in 1907. It was published in London: Chapman and Hall, Ltd. 1906. I have a copy of 1906 book. Do you wish a picture of the book cover? Kohlerrl1965 (talk) 00:38, 25 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
