"'The authors assert that there is an urgent need for an informed and interdisciplinary approach to the study of the media.' - Barbara Bloom, Censored 'III Effects... shows how easy it is to demolish the arguments of the pro-censorship lobby, and the media's dishonest pandering to it.' - Roger Clarke, Independent '... a cogent, lucid refutation of the prevailing "wisdom" on film and TV censorship...' - Time Out 'A refreshing guide to what has often been a stale, circular argument, batted between different shades of moral opportunism in the papers - most of whose pundits have never seen the "immorality" in question.' - Tom Dewe Mathews, Independent on Sunday"
