Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

The marketing of sexual products and services in cyberspace has propelled the pornography debate into new and uncharted territory. This revised edition of PORNOGRAPHY explores the battlelines drawn between those who argue in favor of censorship and those who defend free speech. It includes essays on defining pornography; social and psychological effects; the differences between pornography, erotica, and artistic expression; and sexism, violent pornography, and women's rights.

Book News Annotation:

Offers a spectrum of opinions and arguments for and against the suppression of sexual explicit material, updated from the 1991 edition to reflect the shift of concern from print, telephones, and television to the Internet. The first section focuses on the legislative history of the 1995 Communications Decency Act and its 1997 death in the US Supreme Court. Others present feminist, libertarian, and religious perspectives and views on whether pornography does or does not cause violence. No index.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

While drawing the battle lines between those who argue in favor of censorship and those who defend free speech, this revised edition of Pornography: Private Right or Public Menace? takes an in-depth look at pornography and the Internet, and recent attempts to regulate the booming computer sex business. In addition to the Supreme Court decision in Reno v. ACLU and works examining the Communications Decency Act, this collection contains essays on defining pornography and distinguishing it from erotica and artistic expression: investigating evidence concerning the social and psychological effects of pornography; sexism; and women's rights.
