Abstract

United States publication of the Doctor Dolittle books by Hugh Loftiin is now accompanied either by a before or afterword written by the author's son, Christopher Lofting, to the effect that although "Book banning or censorship is not an American tradition", and although "Publishers rightfully believe that it is their job to publish a writer's work, not to act as censors", a decision has in fact been taken to censor,by both deletion and addition, the original work of the now deceased author.
