On censorship : a public librarian examines cancel culture in the US

LaRue, James 1954- (author.).

Summary: "In America, censorship surges in periods of demographic and political change. Its primary purpose is to silence challenges to an established elite or norm. Today, censorship is part of a larger assault on such American institutions as schools, public libraries, and universities, the better to establish more control over the people--while also pilfering their wallets. In this concise look at censorship, author James LaRue explores the topic through a librarian's lens. Using humor, reason, and intelligence, he builds a case against censorship as he recounts stories from his experience as a librarian confronting book banning, while also casting a wider net to encompass larger issues of censorship. On Censorship is a part of Fulcrum Publishing's Speaker's Corner Books series"--
