Product Description


It is one of the many virtues of this work that the various aspects of freedom of speech are kept constantly in play...This book should be on the reading list of any student of the ideologies and manners of western liberal democracies. (David Bentley (Associate Fellow in International Law at Chatham House) The World Today)

In a tour de force, Professor Barendt concisely yet comprehensively surveys the important topics and recent developments in the free speech jurisprudence of the western democracies, and does so in an eminently readable style that enhances the book's numerous scholarly insights. If I could have only three books on free speech in my collection, this would be one of them. (James Weinstein, Amelia Lewis Professor of Constitutional Law, Arizona State University)

About the Author

Eric Barendt is Goodman Professor of Media Law at University College London.

Fine but superseded 26 July 2006
By Andrew Koppelman - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an impressive study, but it should be allowed to go out of print. Barendt has done a second edition (2005), which supersedes this one.
