Forbidden Bookshelf brings “disappeared” books back to life so that readers may finally learn what the “powers that be” did not want anyone to know…
“As America does not ban books, other means—less obvious, and so less controversial—have been deployed to vaporize them.
For more than half a century, America’s vast literary culture has been disparately policed, and imperceptibly contained, by state and corporate entities well placed and perfectly equipped to wipe out wayward writings.
By looking deep into the darker trends and episodes in US history, these brave works help show how America became the land it is today, and how we might start to change it.”
