INTRO:

This document is some years old, and not quite up to date. I discovered it on
one of my old 360KBs during the recent disputes following restrictions on Alice
Walker's latest book in California. That case got a happy ending, most of the
ones listed below did not. As this is a late 80's list, though, the status of
some entries may have changed. Conclusion: This is a list of examples, and not
by any means a complete list over prose censorship in the US! If you have newer
and more extensive lists, especially from Scandinavia, Western Europe or the
USA, then please mail them to me!

Censored Books

Responding to the Meese commission's official approval of pressure-group
censorship, Waldenbooks staged a promotion featuring 52 volumes that had been
"challenged, burned or banned somewhere in the United States in the last 15

astounding that we decided to publish the complete list.
