The Censorship of Books

The censorship of books is defined as when an authority, government, or otherwise, takes measures to prevent access to a book or to a part of its contents. There have been multiple instances where books have been burned, banned, challenged, or withheld from a group of individuals. This idea has been seen in books, prisons, and in everyday life. Religion, government, and communities have challenged various books and sometimes banned them from the general public.
