Re: Are Bibliographies needed?

If one thinks of a scholarly book in a conventional way, then Joanne Lafler is correct that the inclusion of a bibliography would depend on the book's intended audience, the publisher's requirements, and a few other factors, but these days digital publication allows scholarly books to be presented in pieces, which can be made available online in different places. That makes a bibliography easier to provide as part of the book "package", and in my opinion a bibliography always adds value.
