Throughout history, tyrants, totalitarian states, church institutions, and democratic governments alike have banned books that challenged their assumptions or questioned their activities. Political suppression also occurs in the name of security and the safeguarding of official secrets and is often used as a weapon in larger cultural or political battles. LITERATURE SUPPRESSED ON POLITICAL GROUNDS, Third Edition illustrates the extent and frequency of such censorship in nearly every form of writing.
