Summary
  • Librarians, educators, students, and parents along with publishers, booksellers, writers, and readers interested in the current state of literary censorship in America, especially in our libraries and schools, will find this volume indispensable. This new edition of Banned Books by noted First Amendment advocate Robert P. Doyle details incidents of book bannings from 387 B.C. to 2014. This guide provides a framework for understanding censorship and the protections guaranteed to us through the First Amendment. Interpretations of the uniquely American notion of freedom of expression, and our freedom to read what we choose, are supplemented by straightforward, easily accessible information that will inspire further exploration. This update and expanded 2014 edition features a new, streamlined design that will make this an essential reference you'll return to time and again.--
