     Cultureshock : Born to trouble: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
       One of America's most beloved and banned books, Mark Twain's
       novel was attacked when it was published in 1885 for its
       "low morals." Later, it becme part of the American literary
       canon, only to become controversial again on the grounds of
       racism - a charge that is still debated in schools today. Is
       Huck a brilliant satire against racism, or does it reinforce
       sterotypes?.
