        Ten Books About Censorship For Kids & Teens 09/18/ am ET Updated The annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment, Banned Book Week is September 24th -- October 1st.

Author: Richard Dutton Publisher: Macmillan ISBN: Size: MB Format: PDF, ePub View: Get Books Licensing, Censorship and Authorship in Early Modern England examines in detail both how the practice of censorship shaped writing in the Shakespearean period, and how our sense of that censorship continues to shape modern understandings of what was written.

        The book was an immediate best-seller around the country, but it was also banned and burned in a number of places, including Kern County, Calif. — the endpoint of the Joad family's migration. T raditional censorship was basically an exercise of cut and paste. Government agents inspected the content of newspapers, magazines, books, movies, or news broadcasts, often prior to release, and suppressed or altered them so that only information judged acceptable would reach the public.
