Throughout history, tyrants, totalitarian states, church institutions, and democratic governments alike have banned books that challenged their assumptions or questioned their activities. Political suppression also occurs in the name of security and the safeguarding of official secrets and is often used as a weapon in larger cultural or political battles. Literature Suppressed on Political Grounds, Third Edition illustrates the extent and frequency of such censorship in nearly every form of writing.

About the Author:

Nicholas J. Karolides is a professor of English at the University of Wisconsin, River Falls. His previous books include Celebrating Censored Books and Censored Books: Critical Viewpoints. Margaret Bald is a founding member of the National Writers Union. Dawn B. Sova teaches English at Montclair State University. Her previous books for Facts On File/Checkmark Books include Banned Plays and Forbidden Films. Karolides, Bald, and Sova are the authors of 100 Banned Books and the 4-volume Banned Books set, both from Facts On File/Checkmark Books.

From Booklist:

Previously published in 1989, these four volumes provide a survey of more than 400 titles that have been subjected to censorship by school boards, governments, religious institutions, and other bodies. Within each volume, titles are arranged alphabetically, and entries include brief publishing information, a summary of the book's content, a censorship history, and a short list of further reading. Some 50 entries are new. The political volume has added 10 entries, among them Ha Jin's 1999 novel Waiting, denounced in China for portraying Chinese people as backward; the Chinese publication was canceled. The volume on religious grounds now has entries for five Harry Potter books. Fourteen entries, including one for Sari Says, an advice book for teens, have been added to the sexual grounds volume. Another 14 entries have been added to the social grounds volume, among them Marion Dane Bauer's Am I Blue? and Francesca Lia Block's Baby Be-Bop. Each volume in the set concludes with short author profiles, a bibliography, and a list of books discussed in the other volumes.
