I'll quote a few hilarious titles just to show you how some governments can think:
- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Banned in China (1931) for portraying animals and humans on the same level, "Animals should not use human language."
- The Call of the Wild, by Jack London, Banned in Italy (1929), Yugoslavia (1929), and burned in Nazi bonfires (1932). Who knew Nazis didn't like sled dogs?
- Hamlet. William Shakespeare, Banned in Ethiopia (1978)
- The Martian Chronicles. Ray Bradbury. Challenged at the Haines City, Fla. High School (1982) for profanity and the use of God's name in vain. Challenged at the Newton-Conover, N.C. High School (1987) as supplemental reading due to profanity. Challenged at the Gatlinburg-Pittman, Tenn. High School (1993) due to profanity.
