Banned Books

Book - 2017 | First edition
Rate this:
It may sound shocking, but even in this current age, books are banned all around the globe, but what makes a book inappropriate, even dangerous, for public consumption, and who has the power to deem it so? Some governments ban books as a form of censorship. Even schools can ban books they consider too racy or inappropriate for their students. Does banning books take away our liberties, attempt to erase history, and impose an agenda? Or is the practice actually in our best interests, depending on the circumstance? This balanced volume examines this surprisingly nuanced issue.
