The English saying that 'a picture is worth a thousand words' has often been applied in a perverse manner by ruling authorities. In this book, specialists in nineteenth-century French history trace the use of censorship by nineteenth-century authorities who feared the power of visual and performing arts, from caricature to the cinema and theatre.
