This edition is not available yet.
This book is the fourth volume in the expanded definitive survey, covering the period 1960-1968.
Steve Nicholson’s four-volume analysis of British theatre censorship from 1900 until 1968 is based on previously undocumented material in the Lord Chamberlain’s Correspondence Archives in the British Library and the Royal Archives at Windsor.
‘The Third volume of Steve Nicholson’s The Censorship of British Drama 1900-1968 (Exeter University Press) was the book I most eagerly awaited in 2011 … based like its predecessors on heroic research in the archives of the Lord Chamberlain’s Department.’
‘Nicholson is a scholar who writes with lucidity, wit, humane intelligence and grace of mind. There is no jargon in his pages, but much glorious hilarity. Nicholson’s series ought to be mandatory reading for historians and biographers interesting in twentieth-century England.’
‘The quotations in this book are a gold mine for other writers.’ (Richard Davenport-Hines ‘Books of the Year’ TLS, 5670, December 2011,)
Steve Nicholson is Professor of 20th-Century and Contemporary Theatre, and Director of Drama, in the School of English at the University of Sheffield.
