The Death of Discourse

The Death of Discourse Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Ronald Collins and David Skover boldly raise hard questions...that are seldom considered by liberals or conservatives when discussing free speech....The Death of Discourse is literary dynamite ready to demolish the pomp and hypocrisy obstructing the proud edifice of the First Amendment. This book poses a clear and present danger in the most deserving sense." Leonard W. Levy, Pulitzer Prize recipient and author of Emergence of a Free Press

Review:

"A stimulating tract on freedom of expression...a marvelously written, multi-layered, complex, and imaginative work, a veritable mobius strip. Like no other, this book is an aural, visual, and cerebral experience." Nadine Strossen, President of the ACLU

Review:

"No one has examined more carefully the interrelationships among commerce, culture, and discourse than Collins and Skover. They offer a learned, thought-provoking, and frightening account of what has happened to freedom of expression." Neil Postman, author of Amusing Ourselves to Death

Review:

"No other book on the First Amendment even approximates it or rivals its creativity." David M. O'Brien, author of Constitutional Law & Politics
