Three volumes contain 997 alphabetically arranged essays on
individuals, general issues, books, films and other works,
organizations and government bodies, laws, events, places, and court
cases. The exceptionally broad sweep considers matters such as
gang-related graffiti, school prayer, and dress codes, as well as
obvious censorship targets such as public speaking, the news media,
literature, music, and the arts. Articles take into account every
dimension of censorship: its targets and victims, its perpetrators
and defenders, its rationale, and its subject matter.
