  • The Practice of Censorship

    "Censorship wherever it exists is as much a problem for the police as for the critics. And, like the poor, it is always with us."

  • The Theory of Censorship

    "The present paper aims not at making a novel contribution but at extricating from the confusion the accepted truths, in the hope that the remaining points of difference may be seen more clearly and perhaps brought nearer to reconciliation."
