Synopsis

Banned Books Set by Edited by Ken Wachsberger, Ken Wachsberger

The four-volume Banned Books, Revised Edition set offers an eye-opening look at works of literature that have been censored around the globe and throughout history. More than 50 new entries have been added, and the more than 400 existing entries have been updated to reflect recent controversies. Each clearly written, curriculum-oriented entry presents a publishing history, a summary of contents, and the record of censorship of a well-known, often classic, work. This fascinating set is an essential reference to the contents, contexts, and controversies of banned titles for students and teachers. New and updated entries include: America: The Book (Jon Stewart); The Basketball Diaries (Jim Carroll); Bus Stop (Gao Xingjian); Captain Underpants series (Dav Pilkey); Forever (Judy Blume); Gulliver's Travels (Jonathan Swift); Harry Potter series (J.K. Rowling); The Man Died (Wole Soyinka); Of Mice and Men (John Steinbeck); On the Origin of Species (Charles Darwin); The Politics of Dispossession (Edward Said); The Satanic Verses (Salman Rushdie); Sex (Madonna); To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee); Waiting (Ha Jin); We All Fall Down (Robert Cormier); The Witches (Roald Dahl); and, Women Without Men: A Novel of Modern Iran (Shahrnush Parsipur).
