Scales on Censorship: Real Life Lessons from School Library Journal contains Pat R. Scales' collected columns, all written in response to active book challenges or questions of intellectual freedom and library ethics. These columns have a ripped-from-the-headlines immediacy even as they reflect the core values and policies of librarianship. They are organized by topic, and each is framed with a brief new introductory essay. Scales' powerful reputation and practical ethically-based solutions have made her a key spokesperson and support for librarians working under a censorship siege.
