The issue of censorship remains prevalent in today's society, taking on many different forms - from suppressing individuals' rights to speak freely and read what they choose to curtailing the independence of the media. Censorship may seem outdated in a world of globalization and electronic technology, but its practice throughout the world has not diminished since the era of the right- and left-wing dictatorships of the 20the century.""Censorship"" examines the history and current practices of censorship in five countries - the United States, Russia, China, Zimbabwe, and Egypt - and discusses key counterstrategies. In addition, this enlightening new volume contains relevant primary source documents that are placed in context with brief introductions; information on how to research and evaluate sources; biographical information on important figures whose lives were, or are, linked with censorship; and, a list of U.S. and international organizations and agencies that monitor and publicize censorship activity, provide legal assistance, and develop counterstrategies. An annotated bibliography, a glossary, and a chronology complete this invaluable resource.
