Tracing the development of what's considered obscene , this volume surveys the Anglo-American sweep of anti-obscenity rules, doctrines and case law, from the key 1868 Hicklin test in English law to the Communications Decency Act of 1996. Examining 22 US court cases from the past ...50 years in their historical context, it focuses on how pornography and obscenity have challenged US policy makers, judicial institutions and culture. Case studies covered include: Walter Chaplinsky versus New Hampshire (1942); Samuel Roth versus US (1957); Miller versus California (1971); American Booksellers Association versus William Hudnut (1986); Janet Reno versus American Civil Liberties Union (1997); and United States verus Playboy Entertainment Group (2000).
