"This book outlines the historical context of laws regulating rights to freedom of speech, and explores future threats to these freedoms. Now more than ever, we are living in a free speech paradox: powerful speakers weaponize their rights in order to silence those less-powerful speakers who oppose them. "-- Provided by publisher.
