Attempt at censorship made readership soar
« on: August 26, 2013, 06:14:21 AM »
The late Howard Zinn, historian, social activist and teacher, authored a book called "A People's History of the United States" that is required reading in various American high schools and universities.

After realizing that fact upon reading Zinn's obituary in 2010, then-Gov. Mitch Daniels became concerned about the possibility that Indiana students were reading the book.

He sent an email to then-Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett relaying his fear, referring to the book as "a truly execrable, anti-factual piece of dis-information that misstates American history on every page."

The email by Daniels, now president of Purdue University, regarding Zinn's book was published July 15 by the Associated Press, resulting in an upsurge of readership of the "execrable, anti-factual piece of dis-information."

Nothing like an attempt at censorship to attract interest!
