AbstractRepression and Resistance: Books Censorship in the Military Dictatorship focus censorship processes against fiction books during the Brazilian military regime. Besides the literary evaluations conducted by State censors, the study also presents letters that were sent by members of the civil society recommending the censorship of books considered to be offensive or asking for the release of forbidden works. This documentation allows a fruitful analysis of censorship capillarity, its broad and flexible regulation, and the discussion of its legitimacy in a period when the government repression even sought to control the very visibility of its censorship practice.
