Burning, Banning, Books and Reviews

Now that book burning or its modern equivalent, banning, is raising its head . . . and government sanctioned hate crime legislation will allow book banning in Canada, I predict, and since truth is no excuse, it behooves all to become aware. Forbidding a book is like waving a red flag before the bullish part of some of us. Check these.

"There where books are burned, in the end prople too are burned." -- Heinrich Heine

American Library Association: book burning -- Find controversial books among: a book -- more information and comments and editor's review -- Life at the Bottom -- The Worldview That Makes the Underclass By Theodore Dalrymple and more books here and here, here and here.

Have a happy, book reading weekend.
