    Karolides (English, U. of Wisconsin-River Falls) is the author of 100 Banned Books (Checkmark Books, 1999) and Censored Books (Scarecrow, 1993). As with Censored Books , the aim of this new volume is to "provide rationales for teachers and other citizens in defense of frequently censored/challenged books." In this text, authors, librarians and teachers discuss 65 such books, including works of fiction and non-fiction, for children, adolescents and adults. Each essay discusses why the book should be read; to whom it should be recommended; the essayist's impressions and interpretations of the text, of the concepts, and emotions the reader might experience; and reasons why the book has been challenged. Indexed by book author and title only. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
