Product description

Review

`An intellectual tour de force through political and social theories. A remarkable and intellectually challenging confrontation with ideas that have guided traditional writing about freedom and control of words, media and our understanding of reality.'Journal of Communication

'Jansen offers an incisive and challenging alternative to conventional approaches to censorship. Instead of approaching censorship merely as restrictive practice, the book addresses censorship as an intrinsic outcome of concentrated power. The author frees her subject matter from its often partisan depiction, and roots it firmly as an issue of contemporary life.'Stuart Ewen, Hunter College

'It is forcefully, even beautifully written, as well as thought provoking.'Contemporary Sociology

`An important book that should be read by those students of communication who intend to build a critical theory of meaning, censorship, and the media in this postmodern period of world history.'American Journal of Sociology

From the Back Cover

In this provocative history of censorship, Sue Curry jansen challenges conventional thought with a bold new view: that censorship, an embodiment of the relationship between power and knowledge, is as much a feature of liberal, market societies as it is of totalitarianisms.
