In this gracefully written, accessible and entertaining volume, John Semonche surveys censorship for reasons of sex from the nineteenth century up until the present. He covers the various forms of American media—books and periodicals, pictorial art, motion pictures, music and dance, and radio, television, and the Internet. Despite the varieties of censorship, running from self-censorship to government bans, a common story is told. In each of the areas, Semonche explains via abundant examples how and why censorship took place. He also details how the cultural territory contested by those advocating and opposing censorship diminished over the course of the last two centuries.

Artistic Citizenship asks the question: how do people in the creative arts prepare for, and participate in, civic life? This volume, developed at NYU's Tisch School, identifies the question of artistic citizenship to explore civic identity – the role of the artist in social and cultural terms. With contributions from many connected to the Tisch School including: novelist E.L. Doctorow, performance artist Karen Finley, theatre guru Richard Schechner, and cultural theorist Ella Shohat, this book is indispensable to anyone involved in arts education or the creation of public policy for the arts.

Provides a critical and contentious overview of the fundamental relationship between writing and political dissent from early Greek democracy to post-Enlightenment forms of totalitarianism, such as Communism, Fascism and Nazism and through to modern forms of liberal democracy based upon universal human rights encapsulated by the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Complementing such historical contexts, this book explores the range of predominantly theological and religious, civil and political, social and cultural rationales for contemporary repression, contending that in the modern age at least freedom of expression issues are deeply affected not only by national law but that factors of a transnational (ideological or theological) nature. Finally -- through a review key inter-governmental and non-governmental (NGO) agencies -- the book examines current geo-political trends in the denial of freedom of expression, highlighting post-Cold War and post-September 11 shifts in political and religious repression, a movement in the locale of freedom of expression issues (especially towards electronic forms and Internet) and a heightening of global and transnational dimensions in freedom of expression. The book provides also a substantial series of appendices for scholars, researchers and activists interested in furthering investigation of issues in writing and human rights.

Fans and detractors of popular music tend to agree on one thing: popular music is a bellwether of an individual's political and cultural values. In the United States, for example, one cannot think of the counterculture apart from its music. For that reason, in virtually every country in the world, some group identifies popular music as a source of potential danger and wants to regulate it. Policing Pop looks into the many ways in which popular music and artists around the world are subjected to censorship, ranging from state control and repression to the efforts of special interest or religious groups to limit expression. The essays collected here focus on the forms of censorship as well as specific instances of how the state and other agencies have attempted to restrict the types of music produced, recorded and performed within a culture. Several show how even unsuccessful attempts to exert the power of the state can cause artists to self-censor. Others point to material that taxes even the most liberal defenders of free speech. Taken together, these essays demonstrate that censoring agents target popular music all over the world, and they raise questions about how artists and the public can resist the narrowing of cultural expression.

Das Buch ist konzipiert als ausstellungsbegleitendes Katalogbuch zu einer gleichnamigen Präsentation. Beides zeigt insbesondere anhand von Originalschallplatten- und CD-Covern aus den vergangenen fünfzig Jahren, was in der Geschichte der Rock- und Popmusik entweder Anlass zu öffentlichen Diskussionen gegeben hat oder sogar zensiert worden ist. Die Präsentation geschieht in den meisten Fällen durch eine Gegenüberstellung und den Vergleich der unzensierten mit der zensierten Fassung. Buch wie Ausstellung sind weiter nach Themen wie Political Correctness, Erotik, Gewaltdarstellung etc. gegliedert. Hinsichtlich der Musikstile reicht die Palette von den Anfängen des Rock über Beat, Punk bis hin zu Death Metal und HipHop der aktuellen Szene. Viele der Beispiele belegen, wie sich Werte und Grenzen im Laufe der vergangenen fünfzig Jahre Rock- und Popgeschichte verschoben haben. Das reich bebilderte Katalogbuch enthält einleitende Essays und ist mit einem Lexikon der Musikzensur versehen. Das Buch ist - entgegen des etwas reißerischen Titels - für alle praktisch alle interessierten Altersgruppen geeignet. Ausstellung und Katalog wurden durch Heinz Kock, Dr. Roland Seim und Dr. Josef Spiegel in Zusammenarbeit mit Studierenden des Musikwissenschaftlichen Instituts der Universität Hamburg realisiert, die einige Beiträge zur Verfügung gestellt haben. Unterstützt wird das Projekt durch das Kultursekretariat NRW Gütersloh, den Medium Buchmarkt Münster, das Rock`nṔopmuseum Gronau und die Stiftung Künstlerdorf Schöppingen.
