Censored Books free pdf Some books are challenged in the name of political correctness- others because of concern over violent or sexual content. As illustration of the arguments in support of the teaching of books that are frequently challenged by would-be censors, Nicholas Karolides has chosen a wide range of literature, from the contemporary best-selling Harry Potter books to Faulker's "As I Lay Dying". The rationales, written by authors themselves, librarians and teachers, examine the value of each work as literature, its content relative to societal values and the thorny issue of what material actually constitutes "suitable" reading for young people.
