From the Publisher"[A] concise, highly readable, and fascinating interpretation of cinematic controversies: how they emerge, how they are resolved, and what they may reveal about the larger cultural contexts surrounding the issues. This volume works well as a companion to Dawn Sova's more encyclopedic Forbidden Films: Censorship Histories of 125 Motion Pictures. . . . it could also serve as a text for a course on film history, censorship, and US culture. . . . Recommended."
"The work includes a very comprehensive introduction that can easily stand alone, along with an interesting conclusion section that provides some outstanding insights. In addition, the work has a well-crafted index and a selected bibliography, which provides a good selection of works for further examination on the subject. This book is highly recommended for all public and academic libraries, and is a must-purchase for both film scholars and everyone interested in the cinema and its affect on society."
