Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Offering a potted history of censorship from the execution of Socrates in 399BC to the latest in internet filtering, Petley also explains how todays media monopolies and moguls censor by limiting what news/entertainment they impart. Julian Petley is professor of Film and Television at Brunel University, UK. He is the author of several books on censorship.

Synopsis:

Censorship is alive and well today, and just as pervasive in capitalist democracies as repressive regimes. Offering a potted history of the phenomenon from the execution of Socrates in 399BC to the latest in internet filtering, Petley provides an impassioned manifesto for freedom of speech. Also explaining how media monopolies and moguls censor by limiting what news/entertainment they impart, this is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in global media in the information age.
