Looks at the film industry's attempts at self-regulation and the development of the present day rating system, also examining how censorship reflects the morals, sexuality and politics prevalent in society during each decade of the past century

From ancient times, when crowds forced Euripides to rewrite his original version of Hippolytus, censorship in some form has been a force to contend with in the arts. Miller, however, has done a great deal of research on the subject and has come to the conclusion that movies are a particularly popular target, largely because of their capacity to reach massive numbers of people in comparison with many other art forms. Miller traces the impact of censorship from the days of The Birth of a Nation and other classics to present-day fare like Basic Instinct. He includes specific analyses of scene and dialog cuts, explanations of industry codes and ratings, descriptions of positions taken by church and social activist groups, and an insightful philosophy on censorship in general. An intelligent-and spicy-study for those interested in the sociology and politics of art. For public and academic libraries.
