Description - Freedom of Expression in the 21st Century by Robert E. Trager
Freedom of Expression in the 21st Century addresses current issues about freedom of expression, making use of a variety of interesting cases from continental Europe, UK and other English speaking countries. Robert Trager and Donna L Dickerson investigate the tensions between censorship and expression, to reveal how complex, culturally charged and historically deep these tensions can be. Precisely because freedom of expression varies across countries and cultures, this thought-provoking book examines how and why countries and governments other than the US deal with free speech issues in different ways. Discussions are framed around social issues that allow readers to see connections between freedom of expression and business, politics, economics, class, race and gender. Digital communications, especially the Internet, are shown to be the current battleground for law and social policy. Readership - Students and academics in communication and media studies, cultural studies, sociology and politics.
