I think this should probably be divided into "books which discuss Wikipedia in general" and "books which reference specific articles on specific topics". pfctdayelise (translate?) 09:25, 19 June 2006 (UTC)[reply]

no Invalid A division between treatments and uses of Wikipedia was already made (see Wikipedia:Wikipedia as a book source). --Chealer (talk) 05:12, 21 September 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Spurious book?[edit]

I have deleted the following section from the article. There is no evidence this is an actual book. There is no book listed under its ISBN in either WorldCat or the Library of Congress, and title and author searches at the Library of Congress also come up with nothing. It appears to be a link to a website with a spurious ISBN. Bruxism (talk) 23:25, 20 August 2008 (UTC)[reply]

"Is Wikipedia a new fascism of knowledge perpetrated by disaffected leftists: a Wackopedia?

"The following is a manifesto against Wikipedia - against its pretensions to being encyclopedic; against its false claims of openness; against its representation of a democratic access to, and democratic enunciation of, knowledge; against its institutionalized falsification of facts; against its sordid attempts to monopolize knowledge and rewrite history by blanking out parts of our collective memory and replacing them with imprimaturs. Yes, those are all aspects of the cyberbureaucratic fraud that Wikipedia is committing wholesale upon knowledge. The fraud that consists of producing false knowledge on an encyclopedic scale. Now, that's notable about Wikipedia, if nothing else is."

Reviewing books for the Wikipedia Signpost[edit]

The Signpost is seeking more reviewers for a range of upcoming and recent books related to Wikipedia (yes, this list is badly out of date). Sign up at the review desk.--ragesoss (talk) 05:09, 4 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]
