Details

The issue of censorship remains prevalent in today's society, taking on many different forms—from suppressing individuals' rights to speak freely and read what they choose to curtailing the independence of the media. Censorship may seem outdated in a world of globalization and electronic technology, but its practice throughout the world has not diminished since the era of the right- and left-wing dictatorships of the 20th century.

Censorship examines the history and current practices of censorship in five countries—the United States, Russia, China, Zimbabwe, and Egypt—and discusses key counterstrategies. In addition, this enlightening volume contains relevant primary source documents that are placed in context with brief introductions; information on how to research and evaluate sources; biographical information on important figures whose lives were, or are, linked with censorship; and a list of U.S. and international organizations and agencies that monitor and publicize censorship activity, provide legal assistance, and develop counterstrategies. An annotated bibliography, a glossary, and a chronology complete this invaluable resource.
