Abstract:

"This book focuses on the debate in contemporary arenas of censorship: schools, libraries, newspapers, plays, movies, television shows, photography, books, music lyrics, and the Internet. The introduction discusses why works of art and literature are considered controversial; the biographies profile people who advocate censorship and people who oppose it; and the chronology gives an overview of attempts at censorship throughout history. Of special interest is the chapter covering groundbreaking litigation and proposed legislation on censorship. Rounding out the handbook are lists of organizations and of print and nonprint resources and a comprehensive index. Students, librarians, legislators, and journalists will find this book a valuable resource on this timely and controversial topic."--Jacket.
