Censorship in America discusses why many objects of art, literature, and popular culture are considered controversial, and examines the arguments of both sides. It explores the current wave of censorship in the form of political correctness and covers groundbreaking litigation and proposed legislation.

Continues the series giving high school and undergraduate students a background of uncontested information and representative statements of the positions taken by opponents in current issues. Discusses why works of art and literature are considered controversial, profiles major figures who advocate or oppose censorship, reviews litigation and proposed legislation, lists and evaluates print and non-print information sources, and identifies organizations. Hull specializes in current events and books for young adults.
