Details

Censorship targets speech and writing deemed to attack the state, corrupt morals or question religion. But whose morals, and which religion? Each chapter in this book examines the case of a work – many now considered masterpieces – that fell foul of the censors of the day, including Lady Chatterley's Lover , Ulysses, The Well of Loneliness, Lolita and The Satanic Verses. It is a history of texts and of those who would suppress them.
