"Censorship is a casebook designed to help readers understand the
complexities of censorship and expressive freedom in America during
the past century. The cases and other materials presented in this
volume reveal many of the high and low points in the continuing
struggle between the promise of the First Amendment and the reality
of intermittent censorship and government interference. By focusing
on concrete cases and examples, the volume encourages students and
other readers to explore the underlying conflicts of values that
First Amendment and censorship controversies promote. Censorship is
divided into four thematic units: Freedom of Communication: The
First Amendment and its Many Limitations Schools and Freedom of
Expression The Arts and Censorship Reputational Censorship: Beyond
the First Amendment
