Free Speech and the Politics of Identity

Oxford University Press (1999)
Abstract
Free Speech and the Politics of Identity challenges the scholarly view as well as the dominant legal view outside the United States that the right of free speech may reasonably be traded off in pursuit of justice to stigmatized minorities. The book's innovative normative and interpretative methodology calls for a new departure in comparative public law, in which all states responsibly address their common problems, not only of inadequate protection of free speech, but also correlative failure to take seriously the continuing political power of such evils as anti-Semitism, racism, sexism, and homophobia.
