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)

" James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan Lieutenant-General James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan Born 16 October 1797 Hambleden, Buckinghamshire, England Died 28 March 1868 (aged 70) Deene Park, Northamptonshire, England Allegiance United Kingdom Service/branch British Army Rank Lieutenant General Unit 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars 15th The King's Hussars 11th Hussars Commands held Light Cavalry Brigade Battles/wars Crimean War Battle of Balaclava Awards Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath Lieutenant General James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, KCB (16 October 1797 ? 28 March 1868), was an officer in the British Army who commanded the Light Brigade during the Crimean War. He led the Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaclava. Throughout his life in politics and his long military career he characterised the arrogant and extravagant aristocrat of the period. His progression through the Army was marked by many episodes of extraordinary incompetence, but this can be measured against his generosity to the men under his command and genuine bravery. As a member of the landed aristocracy he had actively and steadfastly opposed any political reform in Britain, but in the last year of his life he relented and came to acknowledge that such reform would bring benefit to all classes of society."--Wikipedia
