Frank Hoffmann is an Associate Professor at the School of Library Science, Sam Houston State Univ., Huntsville, TX. His teaching responsibilities include library collection development and a seminar on intellectual freedom. A lifelong interest in popular culture materials has also brought him into contact with the censoring phenomenon. His publications include The Development of Collections of Sound Recordings in Libraries (Marcel Dekker), The Literature of Rock and the Cash Box chart compilation series (Scarecrow), and Popular Culture and Libraries (Library Professional Publications).
Succinct annotations...clear research strategies... Surprisingly for a bibliography, the book as a whole gives a very clear picture of the intellectual freedom issues that provide Americans...Its use in library school curricula would be of great benefit to our profession.
...an important purchase for all libraries in aiding access to information about intellectual freedom and censorship.
— The Library Quarterly
...excellent and inclusive...could serve as an introduction for students from high school up or for anyone interested in this topic...Recommended for reference departments in libraries at all levels.
