An American Adventure in Book-burning

Covers the American "genius" for self-censorship. Focusing on an episode in World War I, it provides a fascinating rundown on the people, agencies, organizations, campaigns and situations that worked to pull inconvenient history books from the libraries and bookshops long before -- and after -- 1917. Here you'll learn just how far the liberal paragons of "the open mind" have permitted minds to be open. The study includes A Beginner's Manual for Apprentice Bookburners and, like all of Jim Martin's books, is not only highly informative, but lots of fun, too.
