Freedom of SpeechBook - 1985
What types of expressions and behavior should be treated as "speech" for constitutional purposes? Must freedom of speech include the right of access to the media? And what is its relationship to obscenity cases, libel actions, and contempt of court proceedings? This book examines the legal protection of speech in the United States, Great Britain, and Germany under the European Convention of Human Rights. In addressing the questions raised by a discussion of the freedom of speech, the author contends that the meaning and scope of freedom of speech is directly linked to moral and political arguments for its protection and incorporation into constitutions.
