Product description

Synopsis

A law criminalizing incitement to religious hatred has been high on the Labour Government's list of priorities. It is a law with wide-ranging implications for freedom of expression in Britain: it could be used to censor anyone whether writer, comedian or person in the street who wishes to make a statement about religion that others might find offensive. "Free Expression is No Offence" tackles the issue of free speech in the post-9/11 world from a variety of angles. Its authors draw on their wide-ranging experience to show just why it is that attempts to curtail our freedom must be vigorously resisted by anyone who wants all faiths and none to live peaceably side by side and our many cultures to thrive.

About the Author

Lisa Appignanesi is Deputy President of English PEN. She is the author of several books, broadcasts regularly and recently made Freudian Slips for Radio 4.

English PEN exists to promote literature and its understanding; to uphold writers' freedoms around the world; to campaign against the persecution and imprisonment of writers for stating their views; and to promote the friendly co-operation of writers and the free exchange of their ideas.
