The only anthology devoted exclusively to the topic of pornography and censorship that is designed as a textbook. Its aim is threefold: To make students aware of (1) the vast scope of arguments concerning both the nature of pornography and what ought to be done about it; (2) the fact that there is more than one feminist position on pornography; and (3) the complexity of arguments about free speech. Balanced and up-to-date, the book is sensitive to the variety of feminist positions on pornography without being a feminist book and is also sensitive to the complexity of free speech issues.
