KIRKUS REVIEW

Lawyers, leaders in the fight against censorship, here present the story of the struggle. The case history method is used and the stories cited are to the point, illuminating, often amusing. Censorship against plays, movies, radio, art, politics, birth control, books and so forth. Conflict in laws, conflict between Federal and State regulations, appearance of self-appointed guardians of public morals, as Comstock and Sumner, and of municipality organizations, such as the Watch and Ward Society in Boston. A subject on which the public knows little and where furthering wider knowledge is important as a step towards freedom of speech and opinion. Specialized appeal, but important.
