Boyer's (history, U. of Wisconsin, Madison) first edition of this work, published in 1968, chronicling censorship from the 19th century through the 1930s, is presented here essentially unchanged. New to this edition are chapters extending the book's scope to the present, with topics that include the continuing attacks on the First Amendment, the actions of the religious right as it mobilized politically, developments generated by feminism in attitudes towards obscenity, and the new issues generated by the Internet.
