Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sara Rofofsky Marcus
In this part of the "Essential Viewpoints" subseries of the "Essential Library," the reader is presented with nine chapters. The first two chapters define censorship and the First Amendment. Next, the question of who debates censorship is addressed. The following three chapters focus on censorship and freedom of expression, censorship and the law, and censorship in schools today. Chapters 7 and 8 provide arguments in favor of and against censorship respectively, while the final chapter presents censorship decisions. What makes this work truly valuable to the student researcher are the timeline, the essential facts, additional resources, and the glossary provided at the back of the book along with an index. Focusing specifically on censorship in the United States, the volume uses an easy-to-read font with sidebars of interest to the intended populations, along with color photographs and illustrations. Covering not only opinions but also legislation, this is a valuable addition to any middle-school or public library children's collection where research and debate are done and researched. High schools will also benefit from this volume's easy-to-understand attention given to the controversial issues of censorship as the reading level is easier than "Opposing Viewpoints."
