Description

Freedom of speech is one of our greatest legal rights and Cass Sunstein is one of our greatest legal theorists. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to think seriously about the free speech issues facing this generation.-- Akhil Amar, Southmayd Professor, Yale Law SchoolThis is an important book. Beautifully clear and carefully argued, Sunstein's contribution reaches well beyond the confines of academic debate. It will be of interest to any citizen concerned about freedom of speech and the current state of American democracy.-- Joshua Cohen, Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyHow can our constitutional protection of free speech serve to strengthen democracy? Cass Sunstein challenges conventional answers with a remarkable array of lucid arguments and legal examples. There is no better book on the subject.-- Amy Gutmann, Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor, Princeton University
