From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up-These well-organized titles address volatile issues that have been the center of local, state, and national politics for a long time as well as concerns about the Internet that are creating new challenges to First Amendment advocates, and to those who oppose free access to materials. Pornography addresses both sides of the following questions: "Is Pornography Harmful?" "Should Pornography Be Censored?" "How Should Internet Pornography Be Regulated?" "What Should Be the Feminist Stance on Pornography?" Censorship asks: "Should the Right to Free Speech Be Restricted?" "Should Pornography Be Censored?" "Should Schools and Libraries Practice Censorship?" "Should the Arts and Entertainment Industries Be Censored?" Both books include the text of the First Amendment and questions at the beginning of each chapter for students to ponder as they read the different viewpoints. These volumes will be useful for developing the critical-thinking skills necessary to argue points related to these complex issues. Essential additions to school libraries, especially for debate teams.

From Booklist:

Gr. 6-12. As clearly illustrated by these impassioned essays, few topics invite controversy and polarize views like censorship. Fortunately, this Opposing Viewpoints title goes beyond both the conservative (society is an immoral pit) and the liberal (to suggest there's a problem is threatening) perspective. Of course, some essays veer in those directions, but, for example, of the six essays discussing Internet access to pornography, most present multifaceted arguments with usually credible support from multiple sources. The chapter on the arts will be useful to students researching in fine arts electives; the section on free speech includes two interesting essays addressing flag desecration (statistics already need updating); and there are several essays that will be of value to schools wanting to help students identify hate speech or investigating whether to develop campus speech codes.
