The Soviet Censorship.
Dewhirst, Martin, Ed.; Farrell, Robert, Ed.
This book contains the proceedings of a symposium which are intended to be a general survey on the nature of Soviet censorship, its effect on literature in the USSR, and the role of such censorship in the intellectual life of a large part of the world. Contents include: "What Is the Soviet Censorship?" which is an attempt to define the way in which censorship is viewed in the USSR and how it works in practice; "Self-Censorship," which discusses the personal problems writers face under the Soviet system of censorship; "The System of Formal Censorship"; "The Unofficial Censorship"; "Censorship of Music"; "Censorship in the Soviet Cinema"; "Censorship and Science"; "Evading the Censor"; and "The Participants," which lists the members of the symposium. Appended are an extensive selective bibliography of works on censorship, an index of personal names, and a list of Soviet newspapers and periodicals mentioned in the text. (RB)
