Leads the way?
We're not the nation that made a number of actual story books
, 'challenged', that means as I understand it, withdrawn from public
availablity. To all intents and purposes, banned (although scholars with legitimate research reasons could still obtain them legally).
Catcher in the Rye, - Because of its sexual references and blasphemy (so much for keeping religion seperate from politics eh)
The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin; - For containing derogatory language about dark skinned persons. Yanno, the "n" word.
In fact the list
is too long to list here.
We're not leading, we're merely following after you. You went down this road a long time before us, and so far we've only banned a few novels, the
rest technical manuals or similar and are simply restricted. You can have them, but you might be challenged as to why.
