This book addresses current free expression issues and analyzes the historical and legal contexts for the First Amendment. Designed for communication and political science courses in freedom of speech, this text encourages students to think critically about freedom of speech and provides a comprehensive analysis of the historical and legal contexts of the first amendment, from its early foundations through censorship on the Internet. This book explores the worldwide history of freedom of expression and examines classic and contemporary judicial opinions which have determined freedom of speech rights in the U.S. This text provides students with the opportunity to read significant excerpts of landmark decisions and to think critically about the issues and controversies raised in these cases. Students will appreciate the treatment of contemporary issues, including free speech in a post-9/11 world, free expression in cyberspace, and First Amendment rights on college campuses. KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS: - Focuses on landmark Supreme Court free expression decisions and covers follow-up cases that extend and apply these decisions (via significant excerpts from actual cases) so that students can consider the effect of decisions on freedom of expression and the competing values at stake in these cases. - Covers freedom of expression topics in both speech and mediated situations, with comprehensive coverage of such topics obscenity; fighting words and hate speech; national security; invasion of privacy; defamation.

Freedom of expression – particularly freedom of speech – is, in most Western liberal democracies, a well accepted and long established, though contested constitutional right or principle. Whilst based in ethical, rights-based and political theories such as those of: justice, the good life, personal autonomy, self determination, and welfare, as well as arrangements over legitimate government, pluralism and its limits, democracy and the extent and role of the state, there is always a lack of agreement over what precisely freedom of expression entails and how it should be applied. For the purposes of this book we are concerned with freedom of expression and the media with regard to the current application of legal standards and self-regulation to journalistic practice.

Freedom of expression is not absolute, even although it is a fundamental right enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights.

Freedom of expression is not absolute, even although it is a fundamental right enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights. Under the terms of the Article 10 of the Convention, its exercise may be subject to such restrictions as are prescribed by law and are "necessary in a democratic society" in order to uphold the rights of all individuals. The author compares and analyses the protection of and limits on the right to freedom of expression in the case law of European constitutional courts and the European Court of Human Rights, drawing on practical examples, to see whether a common European approach exists in this area.

The essays in this volume portray the public debates concerning freedom of speech in the 18th century in France and Britain as well as Austria, Denmark, Russia, and Spain and its American territories. The economic integration of Europe and its offshoots over the past three centuries into a distinctive cultural product, "the West," has given rise to a triumphant universalist narrative that masks these disparate national contributions to freedom of speech and other liberal rights.
