Summary "Confronting the issue of the unacceptable as a social category, this international collection of essays provides distinctive perspectives on the theme of what is deemed socially acceptable. The unacceptable is explored in relation to censorship, pornography, free speech and hate speech, moral panics, drug culture, social policy and power, fears surrounding paedophilia and the family, gay marriage, childhood sexuality, smoking, and the representation of criminal or transgressive behaviour. The volume reveals the ways in which the category of the unacceptable reflects sexual, racial and political fault-lines of a society."
