This provocative book offers a disturbing view of the ways in which special-interest groups influence the content of public school education. Focusing on recent lawsuits involving attempts to censor or ban textbooks and on other efforts by ultraliberal and ultraconservative groups to have sections of textbooks eliminated or rewritten, Joan DelFattore shows that political and economic forces of the right and left have heavy and often pernicious influence on American textbook publishers.

Good overview of text book censorship. Closely examines what occured in the 1980s. Should be read along with The Language Police: How Pressure Groups Restrict What Students Learn.
