More About the Author
Reissued to mark the 20th anniversary of the birth of "Monty Python's Flying Circus", this case study in censorship describes the barrage of hostility provoked by the Python film "The Life of Brian". It traces the editorial pressures exerted on the Python team by the BBC, their lawsuit with ABC Television in the USA concerning American censorship of their television programmes, and the international ramifications of "The Life of Brian" affair. The author also provides a detailed analysis of the Pythons at work.

When you read about the aggression and legal wranglings of conservative "christians" you start wonder if Python parodied reality or if reality parodied the Python's!
We can read about the attacks on Life of Brian as a blue-print for the new "crusade" against everything the evangelicals don't like.
