Publisher promises to defy Chinese censor

Cambridge University Press has agreed to restore more than 300 politically sensitive articles that had been removed from the publisher’s website in China at the behest of authorities, the editor said Monday.

Cambridge University Press said Friday that it had complied with a request to block certain articles from the China Quarterly within China.
