    As an introduction to Alice Walker, this small book presents two of Walker's most interesting stories, "Roselily" and "Am I Blue," and the beginning of her prize-winning novel, The Color Purple.Further, the pages of Patricia Holt's introduction and the appendices of letters to the editors and meeting transcripts exemplify ways in which these fictional works have been the center of volatile controversy. They have been the subject of removal from tests (as in the case of the recent literature-based assessment tests in California), from school libraries and from school curricula. These controversies, played out in communities across the United States, cut to the heart of issues of censorship and democratic process.

    John Dover Wilson's New Shakespeare, published between 1921 and 1966, became the classic Cambridge edition of Shakespeare's plays and poems until the 1980s. The series, long since out-of-print, is now reissued. Each work is available both individually and as a set, and each contains a lengthy and lively introduction, main text, and substantial notes and glossary printed at the back. The edition, which began with The Tempest and ended with The Sonnets, put into practice the techniques and theories that had evolved under the 'New Bibliography'. Remarkably by today's standards, although it took the best part of half a century to produce, the New Shakespeare involved only a small band of editors besides Dover Wilson himself. As the volumes took shape, many of Dover Wilson's textual methods acquired general acceptance and became an established part of later editorial practice, for example in the Arden and New Cambridge Shakespeares.
