Research paper sources HELP!!!!!

Hello...yet again. I am again concerning my research paper on the banning of Fahrenheit 451. I took all of your comments on my last post into consideration and they helped a lot, THANKS FOR THAT!!! I have about 3 good sources but i would like at least at least 2 to 3 more on ACTUAL INSTANCES WHERE AND WHEN THE BOOK WAS BANNED. Someone said in Mississippi in the lat post but i don't know where to find it. So my actual question is for some help on finding sourse, maybe some websites or URL's that talk about some instances or examples or where and why it was banned. THANKS....YET AGAIN...FOR ALL YOUR INSIGHTS!!!!!!!

Here is a blogsite with a portal of a number of different links relating to this book and reasons why it has been banned since its publication:

http://www.pelhamlibrary.blogspot.com/

The information that is provided on this site no doubt will be useful to you as it also looks at other books that have been banned throughout history since their publication.

On a positive note, here's an example of a case in which the book was acutally deliberately chosen for a public purpose:

You might discuss this as a counter-example to the negative examples we've already mentioned.  Here's another example of the novel actually being promoted by a government agency:

In addition to the links that the previous post has, here is one that details the reasons for one Texas family's attempt to have the book banned in their community.   There are other sites that have stories about the same family.  Here is another.

Also, there were some links offered on at least one of your earlier discussion posts. It may be worthwhile going back to check on that.

Hope this helps!

There are several sites with the history of banned books.  I gave them to you before.  At least one was quite specific.  Here is an article from Mississippi on banning the book.  http://www.banned-books.com/bbarticle-miss.html  Here is one from Texas: http://atheism.about.com/b/2006/10/08/christian-wants-farenheit-451-removed-from-class.htm  Here is some general information.  http://www.squidoo.com/451  I hope that helps!
