Freedom of Speech

Second Edition

Eric Barendt

  • The only book to combine an analysis of the theoretical justification for the protection of free speech with a comparative study of how free speech has been enforced in courts worldwide
  • The rich comparative treatment of six jurisdictions will aid practitioners dealing with questions on which little or now English authority exists
  • Forward-looking analysis examines how free speech is applied in new contexts, including the internet, copyright protection, and commercial speech
