This new title in the Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints series discusses the topic of banned books. The text explores whether or not children should be protected from controversial books and whether or not certain topics or kinds of materials should be restricted. Included articles also examine alternatives to banning controversial books, such as editing or flagging potentially offensive content.
"The titles in this series will be useful for students studying debate topics or researching for papers. It also teaches the valuable lesson that there are two (or more) sides to every issue."
