Patterns of Censorship Around the World (Hardcover)
This volume addresses an important aspect in the political life of most
societies today: limitations on freedom of expression and the existence of
censorship. As a topic for research, study, and reflection-particularly in its
comparative dimension-freedom of expression is a somewhat neglected area.
The vast majority of studies in this field focus either on a specific aspect of
freedom of expression or on a specific country. The current volume, however,
assumes that there is much to be gained by studying freedom of expression and
censorship practices broadly and comparatively. In a world grown small, global
perspective is possible and beneficial, particularly when it is applied to an issue
of great relevance for all societies.
