Although America is probably the most free and tolerant nation on earth, censorship continues to flourish and increase in the arts, music, television, and advertising, and even in universities. Patrick Garry defines censorship in America across the years, analyzes its root causes, examines traditional battles and new ones, and describes serious new forms of censorship. His beautifully written book is a thought-provoking one about our national psyche and restrictions on our freedom to speak.
