An account of attempts by authorities throughout Europe to stifle the growth of political opposition during the 19th century by censoring newspapers, books, caricatures, plays, operas and film. The author cites examples and notes that while European political censorship blocked the open circulation of much opposition writing and art, it never entirely succeeded in its aim since writers, artists and consumers often evaded censors by clandestine circulation of forbidden material and by the widely-practiced skill of reading between the lines . Robert Goldstein is also author of Political Repression in Modern America: From 1870 to its Present and Political Repression in Nineteenth-Century Europe .
