Description

Award-winning columnist Lewis Lapham issues an urgent new polemic about the strangling of meaningful dissent?the lifeblood of democracy?at the hands of a government and media increasingly beholden to the wealthy few. Never before, Lapham argues, have voices of protest been so locked out of the mainstream conversation, so marginalized and muted by a government that recklessly disregards civil liberties. In the midst of the ?war on terror,? we face a crisis of democracy as serious as any in our history. Gag Rule is a rousing and necessary call to action in defense of the right to raise our voices and have those voices heard.
