From Animal Farm to Ulysses, this book examines the struggle 120 of these works faced to be read." 120 Banned Books provides a summary and censorship history of each morework and lists suggestions for further reading. This book expands on the 100 titles profiled in 100 Banned books (Facts On File/Checkmark Books, 1999) by adding 20 new entries on texts that have sparked controversy or been banned outright.
