Book Description Checkmark Books, New York, 2005. Soft cover. Condition: New. A saddening and maddening book for those of us who love them, the censorship histories of books from the "Talmud" to "Captain Underpants." Organized by the type of objection the books raised--political (The Grapes of Wrath), religious (Oliver Twist), sexual (Forever Amber), or social (Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl.) Shipping this book to you will cost me at least 2.63 dollars postage, plus my paper, tape, and coffee. These costs are included in the quoted price. Seller Inventory # 000040
