Denis Dutton, University of Canterbury, New Zealand The genius of Nigel Warburton's Free Speech lies not only in its extraordinary clarity and incisiveness. Just as important is the way Warburton addresses freedom of speech - and attempts to stifle it - as an issue for the 21st century. More than ever, we need this book.


Lisa Appignanesi, President English PEN Crisp, clear and astute, this is a thought-provoking introduction to one of the most hotly contested questions of our time.
