Lad Chatterley's Lover and Censorship

At our Irish-American retreat last week, we held a fascinating session on censorship. It focused on Ireland, and we didn’t dwell on the issue in other countries. Yesterday’s Guardian had a great account of the Lady Chatterley trial in the United Kingdom, by the distinguished barrister Geoffrey Robertson.
Geoff’s latest book The Case of the Pope: Vatican Responsibility for Human Rights Abuses, published by Penguin, is also well worth a read.
