Super-librarian Sue Ann Campbell reports on a bit of library performance art:
The library where I work owns a book titled Order and Anarchy.
It is shelved on the 3rd floor on shelving right in front of the elevator.
Every day someone takes the book out of its assigned slot and gently lays it along side the books, lying it on its side.
Every day that I see it, I take the book and replace it in it’s proper slot.
Order and Anarchy. Seems about right.
[Update: I believe the book must be Anarchy & order : the interplay of politics and law in international relations, by James C. Hsiung, call no. JX1391 .H78 1997, if you should wish to take in the performance yourself. But I suppose it could be Ordering anarchy : international law in international society, by Rein Müllerson, KZ3405.M85 A36 2000. According to Baron, both are shelved on the third floor, and as of this writing both are on the shelf.]
