This unique collection of essays, some themselves documents in the debates and discussions that characterized these years, reflects on the wide range of issues and concerns that archivists addressed in the 1980s and suggests some future directions for the archival profession as it nears the end of this century. Not since the 1960s and the writings of Ernst Posner on state archives and H.G. Jones on the National Archives has there been such an effort by an individual to assess the nature and condition of the archival profession.
