This collection of sixty-three essays provides assistance to the growing number of students, teachers, librarians, and parents who find themselves confronting a censorship situation. The contributors are both authors-of fiction, drama, and poetry for adults, children, and adolescents-and teachers of literature, writing about the books that are most frequently challenged in schools and libraries.

John M. Kean, Professor of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Wisconsin-Madison, has taught and published articles on children's and young adult literature, the teaching of writing, and censorship in the schools. He has been a member and chair of the NCTE Committee Against Censorship and a member of the CEE Commission on Intellectual Freedom and the IRA Advisory Committee on Intellectual Freedom. The late Lee Burress, Professor Emeritus, English, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, taught and published on American literature, folklore, composition, and literary censorship and was a member and chair of the NCTE Committee Against Censorship. He was author, co-author, or co-editor of Battle of the Books (Scarecrow, 1989); Celebrating Censored Books (with Nicholas Karolides); How Censorship Affects the School and Other Essays; and The Student's Right to Know (with Edward Jenkinson). Nicholas Karolides is Professor of English and Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, University of Wisconsin-River Falls. His recent books include Reader Response in the Classroom, Evoking and Interpreting Literature in the Classroom, Focus on Physical Impairments, and Focus on Fitness (with Melissa Karolides).
