Fear of Words
Censorship and the Public Libraries of Canada

Schrader, Alvin M

Resource Type:  Book
Cx Number:  CX8117

Professor Shrader undertook a survey of Canadian Public Libraries (1985-1987) to examine the question of censorship. Some of the "challenges" to libraries are minor, others are based on an ideological basis. While librarians are still able to buy controversial books and materials he fears that the increase in censorship will be harmful to the nation as a whole. This book is recomended for anyone concerned with intellectual freedom.
