You might think that censorship is a thing of the past, but you’d be wrong. Today, Twitter in Thailand, blogs in Vietnam and journalism in the Middle East are all censored. Even in the US and Europe, books, films and the Internet continue to be filtered – controlling what we see and know. However, there are instances where censorship is considered necessary, or beneficial, for example the vetting of adverts that are shown to children, or of violence on television. This book explores the many facets of censorship in today’s society.
The information inside comes from a variety of sources, including newspapers, magazines, government reports and charity groups; providing different perspectives on challenging topics. At the end of the book is a selection of activities that will encourage interaction, literacy, critical thinking and independent research
