Free Speech and Censorship around the Globe

January 27, 2015

CEU Press's first volume in 2015 contains stories about how imagination and rational thinking in wildly different cultures capture, imagine, and conceptualize what freedom of speech means. Edited by Peter Molnar, former CMCS fellow, this book treats the reader not as a tourist, but as a traveler. It is a wide-ranging mix of formal academic analysis, interviews and speeches from an impressive array of people (who are directly and variously involved in monitoring and promoting media free speech, or are engaged in the academic and legal study of media free speech and its violations). The volume includes many different viewpoints from many different angles and, more importantly, it covers all the modern media platforms and dissemination systems and their corresponding impact upon free speech. It draws a map of the concepts and contexts of free speech in the second decade of the 21st century.
