Speaking Respect, Respecting Speech

Write The First Customer Review

The feminist campaign against pornography, the furor over a racial epithet in the O.J. Simpson trial, and Iran's threat to kill Salman Rushdie exemplify the intense passions aroused by hurtful speech. Richard Abel convincingly exposes the inadequacies of legislating speech, and proposes instead a system of inter-community apology aimed at strengthening and equalizing respect for cross-cultural identities.
