"Mark Cohen'sre-definition of censorship as essentially a practice of judgment moves be yond the traditional Enlightenment view of censorship as an oppressive government practice and the consequent liberal condemnation of censorship on principle. Since judgment is enmeshed in the fabric of human endeavour, censorship is inevitable; since censorship is inevitable, Cohen concludes, debate over whether censorship itself is desirable should give way to a search for censorship practices that are more just." - from the dustjacket.
