Society condemns pornography but the Internet has created unprecedented access to porn. Taking an objective view of popular interest in the subject, this book deals with pornography as a social issue, translating the best academic research into reader-friendly language. Pornography considers why adults are so concerned with young people’s consumption of this product, and presents ideas for how the latter can take a critical approach to dealing with it.

Review:

Debbie Nathan is frank and cool as she surveys arguments against and defenses of [pornography]...a thoroughly compelling read. (CM Magazine 2009-09-09)

...this overview presents the pros and cons of adult entertainment in surprisingly fair measure, and the source notes, further resources, and extensive time line...will help readers who want more information to help them figure out where they stand on the issue. (Booklist 2007-11-07)
