Censorship for Dummies

John Wiley & Sons New Jersey, 2004

A well-connected publishing-world friend of Vondeling introduced the recently resigned Jossey-Bass editor to Berrett-Koehler management, and "she's going to come aboard as our second acquisitions editor in October," says Berrett-Koehler Publicity Director Ken Lupoff.

The Great American Job Scam will be published by Berrett-Koehler in 2005.

You Can Do It, Too!

Nobody begins his workweek saying, "Gee, I've always wanted to cower before corporate behemoths, induce the resignation of a beloved senior employee, demoralize my staff, and tarnish my company's reputation in the community through censorship!" But sometimes these things must be done.

Here's an idea: Adapt the John Wiley & Sons example in a way that suits your particular censorship situation. Censorship for Dummies' friendly insights and colorful examples can come in handy, whether you're a giant record company wishing to soften the image of your faux-indie label or a publisher who'd like to see your once-cutting-edge skate magazine get more space on megaretailers' shelves. If used correctly, the examples in Wiley's production of Censorship for Dummies can help you do your part to strengthen the grip of giant corporations on our culture, without requiring those same corporations to muddy their hands in the process.

They shouldn't have to. They're no dummies.
