Summary
This text details the history of what, in law, has been considered obscene, pornographic, prurient, indecent, and 'dirty'. From notorious novels to naturalist movies, from sex education for juveniles to sex magazines for adults, all phases of the controversial field are covered. The role of censorship, official and private, is documented in terms of actual cases, briefs, and judicial decisions
