Censorship Y/N? – Kuwait 36th book fair

Now that the date of the opening of the Kuwait’s 36th International book fair (I wonder why they call it international), I’m anticipating the new books on the black list! I understand why some movies need to be censored, and why some photos need to be covered and so, but why books? I`m not talking about the books with pornography issues, but I`m shedding the light on the political, religious, and art books. I can never ever find a decent book about art history here in Kuwait. All I`m wishing for this year is more books, more freedom, and absolutely more book stores in Kuwait.

What do you think about the censoring issue? is it right? wrong? does it actually help?

P.S.:

The book fair will be held on Wednesday, October 19 at 9:00am until October 29 at 9:30pm in 5-6-7 halls of the Kuwait International Fair.
