Formatted abstract
The topic of censorship in nineteenth-century Europe, as presented by these two volumes, is worthy of more attention among historians in political and cultural arenas. The authors here demonstrate not only the role of censorship in a variety of national contexts, but also the history of the institutionalization and bureaucratization of censorship. The two approaches to censorship here will be of interest for historians of the German Right, and historians of German and European culture and society in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries more generally. Censorship, whether self-censoring or enforced by someone with cultural or political power, turns out to be a complicated and intrinsic part of modern society.
