Do you want someone to tell you what books you can read? What songs you can listen to on the radio? What television shows you can watch, or what movies you can see? What magazines you can buy at the local 7-11? Most Americans what to decide for themselves? However, during 1990 alone, the American Library Association's Office of Intellectual Freedom reported over a thousand attempts to ban books from libraries & schools, & censors made countless attacks on popular culture & the arts. In 50 Ways to Fight Censorship, best-selling author Dave Marsh has created the first how-to manual for people who want to respond to the growing list of challenges to First Amendment freedoms. This positive, straightforward action guide includes: * Reports on the recent censorship battles over music, literature, film, television, & the fine arts, as well as news coverage of the Gulf War. * Comprehensive ?sometimes shocking ? information about pro-censorship forces, including individuals, organizations, & elected officials. * Things you can do, on your own or with others, to fight back against censorship, from boycotting products made by companies that fund the censors to starting an anti-censorship petition campaign. * Extensive lists of organizations & resources.
