Summary
Censorship suppresses human expression. It can be a means of limiting public dissension from an authoritarian and/or unpopular government; a method for protecting religious dogma from heresy, whether perceived or real; and a way of imposing a set of standards on communities or individuals. On the other hand, censorship, in the forms of film ratings, v-chips, and Internet filters, upholds parental authority. Thus, censorship is viewed both as evil and as a tool against evil. Even in the 21st century, with its emphasis on information and globalization, and with an electronic technology that disregards borders, censorship continues to dictate the lives of many. Providing a comprehensive overview of the different forms that censorship can take, this book examines the history and current practices of censorship in five countries-the United States, Russia, China, Zimbabwe, and Egypt-and discusses key counterstrategies
