Censorship has bedeviled free expression in the United States from the time of the Pilgrims. This book reveals how and why it happens, in spite of the First Amendment. Through dramatisation, aneedotes, interviews and actual trial transcripts, it shows how censorship affects politics, religion, social status, education and publishing. Before taking up writing full time more than twenty years ago, William Noble was a practicing attorney. He graduated from Lehigh University, received his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania, was a member of the Philadelphia and Pennsylvania bars and corporate counsel to Armstrong World Industries. He teaches writing and is the author of a number of books, including several for writers.
