The Censorship of British Drama 1900-1968, Volume 2
by Steve Nicholson
Steve Nicholson’s important and warmly reviewed four-part analysis of British theatre censorship from 1900 to 1968 is based on previously unpublished material in the Lord Chamberlain’s Correspondence Archives in the British Library and the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle.
Volume Two covers the period from 1933 to 1952 and focuses on theatre censorship during the years before, during and after the Second World War. It is mainly concerned with political and moral censorship.
