Este libro recopila documentos importantes y notas sobre la política acerca de la libertad intelectual y sus normas para la ALA (American Library Association.

En concreto, se trata del suplemento que acompaña a la 9ª edición con la historia de estas normas.

La libertad intelectual, en contra de la censura y de los ataques a la libertad de expresión y de prensa, tiene un gran arraigo en el mundo bibliotecario y la ALA se ha caracterizado siempre por su defensa a ultranza, sobre todo en un país donde algunos libros intentan ser prohibidos por la razón más inverosímil.

Y éste es el manual al que se refiere el título anterior, con su 9ª edición.

La oficina de la ALA para la libertad intelectual fue establecida en 1967 y ha tratado de guiar a los miembros de esta improtante asociación a través de guías y manuales que podían ayudar con las diferentes amenazas que sufría la libertad intelectual en Estados Unidos y, también, en el resto del mundo. Es un texto muy importante para este estudio.
