Forward

The Book and Periodical Council is proud to present this guide for librarians, teachers, booksellers and others who face righteous-minded censors, usually without warning or time to prepare. In addition to the helpful advice contained in this small volume, it is useful to remember that the freedom of speech which most needs protection is the speech with which you do not agree and may even abhor. In comparison with that challenge, defending the freedom of speech in a literary classic is a snap.
