MEDIA REVIEWS

"A readable, intimate account of the rise to near-tyrannical power, and the fall to well-deserved ignominy, of the old Production Code Administration." -- Atlantic Monthly


"The triumph of Leff and Simmons's fine work is that they have reminded us of how fatuous and inimical a code of conduct can be: how tempting it is as a theoretical answer, and how intrinsically flawed it is as a working solution." -- Times of London


"A valuable insight into our own innocence and naivet ." -- New York Times Book Review
