From The Forbidden Bookshelf

The recent spate of book bans by the Home Ministry brings us back to the question, does book censorship still make sense in the world today? Umapagan Ampikaipakan explores this question with Zaharom Nain, Professor of Media and Communication Studies at the University of Nottingham Malaysia campus. Then Uma speaks with Julia Eichelberger, Professor of Southern Literature at College of Charleston, about To Kill A Mockingbird, the American classic that's repeatedly found itself challenged or placed on banned books lists.
