The marketing of sexual products and services in cyberspace has propelled the pornography debate into new and unchartered territory. Congressmen and anti-porn activists are lobbying just as hard today against "cyberporn" as they were thirty years ago against "dirty" magazines.

An all new section in this revised edition of Pornography examines the booming computer sex business. "Pornography and the Internet" opens with the Supreme Court decision in Reno vs. ACLU, commentary from Justices Stevens and O'Connor, and includes seven works on the Communications Decency Act.

Pornography explores the battlelines drawn between those who argue in favor of censorship and those who defend free speech, including essays on defining pornography; social and psychological effects; the differences between pornography, erotica, and artistic expression; sexism, violent pornography, and women's rights.

Contributors include Harry Brod, Barbara Dority, Andrea Dworkin, Theodore A. Gracyk, Judith Hill, Helen E. Longino, Thomas Parker, Alan Soble, Gloria Steinem, George F. Will, and more.
