The history of media censorship is told in large part through technical legal texts that at times seem to be written in a foreign language. Drawing on his background as an attorney, Geltzer is able to cut through the legal-ese that can be so daunting, making legible a history that is often dry and opaque. He begins in the early days of cinema, when boxing pictures and films like The Kiss led to scandal and censorship for the new medium.
