The Knot that Binds Power and Knowledge

Sue Curry Jansen

Communication and Society

Sue Curry Jansen here challenges conventional thought with a bold new view that censorship is as much a feature of liberal, market societies as it is of totalitarianisms. Jansen addresses the notion of "market censorship" and shows how the marketplace has become an arena for liberal "power-knowledge." She also analyzes Marx's critique of bourgeois censorship, examines censorship at various levels of Soviet society, and takes an incisive look at economic censorship within our own capitalist nation.
