About this item

When we think of the word "censorship," we imagine blacked out words and authoritarian political regimes of the past. However, censorship is alive and well today, and just as pervasive in capitalist democracies as repressive regimes.

Offering a potted history of the phenomenon from the execution of Socrates in 399 BC to the latest in internet filtering, Petley provides an impassioned manifesto for freedom of speech, and also explains how media monopolies and moguls censor by limiting what news/entertainment they impart. This is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in global media in the information age.
