A Danish drugs and sex education book, The Little Red Schoolbook, caused so much outrage in 1971 that the governments of Australia and many European countries called for it to be banned. Using this furore as its lynchpin, The Book that Shook the World investigates the repressive censorship laws under which Australians lived in the 60s/70s, and shows how change was brought about by the actions of people willing to risk jail for their anti-censorship beliefs.
