Summary

Throughout history, nations, peoples, and governments have censored writers and their works on political, religious, sexual, and social grounds. Although the literary merit of the majority of these books has been proven time and time again, efforts are still in place today to suppress some of them. 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 work 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. In addition, updates to existing entries cover new controversies regarding such classics as Huckleberry Finn, The Canterbury Tales, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
