This is the first bibliography exclusively devoted to censorship in the Arab world. It includes items in such areas as academic freedom; book banning; book trade; copyright and intellectual property; freedom of information, communication, and expression; freedom of the press and politics; intellectual freedom; the Internet; journalistic ethics; laws and legislation; libraries; library acquisitions; literature; privacy; radio and television; and theater and film. More than 650 items are included in this bibliography ranging from books, scholarly journal articles, and chapters in books to doctoral dissertations, conference papers, and articles in scholarly dictionaries and encyclopedias in Arabic, English, French, and several other languages published between 1960 and 2004. Extensive cross-references are provided at the end of each chapter and an author and title index are also included. This is an indispensable guide for students, educators, researchers, journalists, policy makers, and the general public interested in uncovering the realities of censorship in the Arab world.
