You can't read this book : censorship in an age of freedom

Summary:
From the fall of the Berlin Wall to the advert of the Web, everywhere you turn you are told that we live in an age of unparalleled freedom. This is dangerously naive. From the revolution in Iran that wasn't to the imposition of super-injunctions from the filthy rich, we still live in a world where you can write a book and end up dead.
