520 1  "With the introduction of the printing press in England in
       1476, a struggle over its control - and its potential for 
       interrupting power - was joined. The written word, once 
       the domain of the upper levels of society that controlled 
       politics, economics, and religion, could be seen passing 
       into the hands of anyone throughout the social strata who 
       wished to voice opinions on any topic of interest or 
       importance. How the advent of printing led to the idea of 
       a free press is the story told by David A. Copeland in 
       this book, which traces a confrontation that began with 
       issues of religion and gradually expanded into the realm 
       of political freedom."--BOOK JACKET.
