Free Speech: A Very Short Introduction

Nigel Warburton

Very Short Introductions

  • An accessible and up-to-date examination of the principal arguments both for and against our right to maintain free speech
  • Looks at controversial issues ranging from Holocaust denial and pornography, to the status of modern copyright law
  • Relates philosophical arguments to present-day case studies, and combines traditional areas of discussion, such as J. S. Mill's arguments in <i>On Liberty</i>, with new applications and challenges to free speech, such as digital technology and the Internet
