Summary
A history of book censorship in Australia; what we couldn't read, didn't read, didn't know, and why we didn't. For much of the twentieth century, Australia banned more books and more serious books than most other English-speaking or Western countries, from the Kama Sutra through to Huxley's Brave New World and Joyce's Ulysses
