[about] the emergence of courageous and controversial publishers after World War I, the effect of Nazi book burnings, and the failure or reticence of librarians . . . to be in the anti-censorship vanguard. . . . The best literary, social, and ethical history of [book censorship in] the U.S."--Choice



"Clear, informative, and very readable. . . . An excellent and much-needed book."--Publishers Weekly
