Literary censorship in England from the introduction of printing in 1476 to the present is the subject of this book. Topics discussed include (1) the development of prepublication censorship from 1476 to 1695; (2) political censorship generated by fear of enemies at home and abroad: 1695-1760; (3) religious and political censorship in the early 18th century; (4) influences of Societies for the Reformation of Manners on the enforcement of laws against obscene literature, beginning in 1692; (5) liberty versus licentiousness: 1760-1792; (6) struggles against political censorship after 1792, with greater freedoms of speech and the press evident by 1832; (7) expurgation in the 19th century fostered especially by Thomas Bowdler and various organizations working against freedom of the press; (8) Victorian mistranslations, expurgations, and moral censorship exercised chiefly by booksellers, libraries, publishers, and editors; and (9) the relaxed moral censorship in the 20th century which nevertheless continues to exercise its own form of censorship--on racism, pornography, the emancipation of women. A 200-page appendix contains extracts from little-known publications banned during the past 500 years. (Jm)
