AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Documents the publicity campaign which arose from a 12 year old girl reading Nikki Gemmell's Cleave : A Novel which she had borrowed from her school library. Starke focuses on the conduct of the campaign, activated by the girl's mother, through talkback radio and the use of petitions. Starke's conclusion is that, when the need arises, writers should take issue with censorship through negotiation with the "decision-makers" rather than in the court of the "shock jocks".
