Restricted Entry: Censorship on Trial
Press Gang Publishers, 1996 - Social Science - 233 pages
Restricted Entry: Censorship on Trial bears witness to the epic fight waged by Little Sister's bookstore during a decade of resisting stare censorship of gay and lesbian literature. Recognized as one of the century's most impressive challenges to state censorship, this is a story with international consequences. The second edition of Restricted Entry includes a summary of the court ruling, which was pending when the book was first published. Although celebrated as a partial victory for queer culture, the case will proceed to the Court of Appeal, as Little Sister's bookstore continues to dispute Canada Customs' censorship powers. At stake is the public's right to make our own choices about what we will or will not read.
