Connecting Free Speech and Defamation 27 Jan 2010
By Harry Melkonian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are many books about freedom of speech but there are very few that deal with these principles as well as the grittiness of defamation law in various countries Dr. Milo has made a significant contribution by squarely confronting the relationship between these two connected issues. Attempts to reform libel laws have frequently failed because the reforms were made without considering the underlying free speech issues. This book makes a significant contribution by showing the relationship between the two disciplines. Wriiten in clear language, this text goes a long way to connect legal and philosophical concepts.
