I should mention that a 4 volume publication, _Censorship: A World 
Encyclopedia_, edited by Derek Jones, has just been published by Fitzroy 
Dearborn Publishers (ISBN: 1579581358). The publication is just huge and 
includes entries on all kinds of censorship, film and otherwise, all 
around the world. There are quite a number of entries on Japan related 
topics, including one on film in general (which I wrote, over 2000 words 
in length) and another on Oshima. It's too expensive for individuals to 
buy, but I hope libraries acquire it.
