Generally, in the field of education, be it you are a student or a professor, you will surely need to do some sort of reference regarding your studies. Gone are the days, where one has to completely sail through the ocean of books at the library, to get just a single point clarified! The developed heights of the internet, has made this tedious task of searching to be the simplest one! This is how the Open Textbooks have had its intro. Anyone who is in the thirst of knowledge could use these sorts of books as a ready reckoner with the ease of surfing through the suitable sites.

Connotation of open textbook:

To define an open textbook, as its name itself makes it clear, these books are open to all for reference, distribution, copying and even editing in some cases. Therefore, an open textbook author is so liberal in waiving his rights and granting them to the readers of his book! Thus open book could be more precisely said to be openly-licensed textbooks, where you, who read the book, are licensed to edit it, share it, change its format, deal it out commercially or non-commercially without exhibiting the credit of the original author. Its free accessibility makes it stronger in content over powering the traditional textbook model!

Significance of open textbooks:

Statistics, very clearly points out that the growing inflation has its cruel impact on the student sector too, that they have to pay $62.97, which is calculated to be the average cost of just one textbook! Thus, open textbooks are making the concept of “textbook affordability” a possible one. These helpful books, by which the true realms of the education are just open to all classes of people, considerably reduce the cost of education.
Just as Nicole Allen, the Campaign Director for ‘Make Textbooks Affordable’ commented the open textbooks would bring out the best quality of education and even reform the textbook industry!

Difference between the traditional and open textbooks:

The main point of difference, which exists between the traditional online books and open textbooks, lies in the fact of accessibility. In the case of former books, the author has copyrights and you, as a reader have no right to edit it, but suggestions are welcome. This is not so in the case of open textbooks. The author himself, permits editing to be done, thus making the book more resourceful and updated. There is no need for the instructors to be keeping on amending their curriculum to the new edition as in the case of traditional books. When the matter in the books is refreshed automatically by open editing, where lies the need for buying and lurking for new books? Are not the open textbooks more advantageous?

Conclusion:

To sum up, the open textbook is indeed bliss for the parents of the student sector, who need not be spending their money to get the required books. Also for the teaching sector as they get the latest details wanted. With the growth of internet and other web-based facilities, the open textbooks will also be on its steady strand of rise, emerging to be an ingenious book of revised information, making our people more erudite!

CONTROVERSIAL TEXTBOOKS

Introduction:

Sir Francis Bacon’s famous quote goes as: “Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested”. Yet there is another category of books, which ought to be banned! Popularly termed as the ‘Controversial books’, these books are generally restricted from free access. A book can be banned on the basis of political, religious or even moral grounds. Once a book is published, it is open to all sorts of comments, positive or negative, and when it receives controversial comments it becomes notorious and people of different classes, raise their voices against the book. This makes a book to be listed as controversial book.
Reasons that could make a book turn controversial:

There are innumerous reasons to state that a book is ought to be banned. The reason for banning a book might vary under different circumstances but the end result is one. The basic idea is the morality of the society should not be spoiled. The bans placed on the books may be on a national level too, which results in evacuation of the very existence of the book from the society. The restrictions placed on publishing a book may change from country to country, but some of the common grounds are racialism, social standing, sexuality and usage of obscene words. To speak about some famous books which turned controversial, The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, The Satanic verses by Salman Rushdie, The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx, Mein Kamf by Adolf Hitler and many more! In the above-mentioned four books, while the first two were declared controversial on religious basis, the latter ones were banned on political grounds.

The Da Vinci code:
This novel, written by Dan Brown is a mystery-detective novel, which unwinds new move in trying to find the descendants of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. As the basic concept of Christianity, which stands with divinity of Jesus Christ, is shaken, this novel was severely criticized by the religious people. Apart from the harsh remarks regarding inaccurate history and geographic details, this novel also drew the other protests like, misrepresentation of the Roman Catholic Church and other literary criticisms too.

Mein Kamf:
The author of this book is indeed a world famous controversial leader, making it to be the very first supportive point to ban this book! Adolf Hitler has clearly mentioned in this book, that the Jews are accountable for some of the major international issues, undoubtedly becomes a leader most hated by Jews. The Political ideology handled in this book was the main reason for it to be condemned as it could be defined as extremist. Its racist content made it still more notorious and unpopular among many European nations.

Conclusion:
Discussed above are just samples of two controversial books, which were forbidden for two singular causes. So are there different books, which were and which are being objected under numerous causes, so that they might not prove to be a black mark in our society. As already mentioned, there are thousands of reasons to fuel the flames of controversy, yet it is up to the individual’s to take up the good points even from the worst books.
