CensorshipBook - 1999
This book examines all kinds of controls that have been imposed on communications, from the first emperor of China who had his critics buried alive, to the new laws introduced in Europe and North America relating to information on the Internet. It sets out the arguments for and against censorship in the media, and raises questions about secrecy and privacy, commercial and political power, moral and religious judgements and artistic freedom. Throughout the book, quotes and questions and dramatic photographs all help to set the reader thinking about the fundamental question, is the freedom to communicate a human right or a privilege?
