Product description

Review

"Boyer . . . writes with insight and sophisticated wit . . . [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

Review

The best literary, social, and ethical history of book censorship in the U.S. - Choice ""Boyer has traced the confusions, the ironies, and the sometimes humorous and sometimes tragic effects of American efforts to cope with the question of what is permissible and what is taboo in the public morality and in the printed word."" - George K. Smart, American Quarterly
