Banned in the U.S.A.: A Reference Guide to Book Censorship in Schools and Public Libraries
Virtually every aspect of book censorship, from its historical inception, to current trends and cases is examined in this up-to-date, comprehensive, and readable survey and reference source. In response to the sharp increase in censorship attempts in American schools and public libraries in the 1990s, Foerstel analyzes eight major bookbanning incidents from 1976 through 1992, ranks the 50 most frequently challenged books in the 1990s and summarizes the challenges to them, traces First Amendment cases and precedents in bookbanning in schools and public libraries, and interviews frequently banned authors including Judy Blume, Robert Cormier, and Katherine Paterson.
