AbstractFollowing 9/11 fears of terrorism lead the Federal Bureau of Prisons to restrict prisoner access to religious books. Staff of the Bureau compiled a list of "noncontroversial" books and multimedia materials for each of the twenty major religions. The Standardized Chapel Library Project required chapel libraries to purge books that were not on the approved list. This new policy severely limits prisoner access to religious literature.
