Description
Garton Ash argues that in this connected world, the way to combine freedom and diversity is to have more but also better free speech. Across all cultural divides we must strive to agree on how we disagree. He draws on a thirteen-language global online project -- freespeechdebate.com -- conducted out of Oxford University and devoted to doing just that. With vivid examples, from China’s Orwellian censorship apparatus to the controversy around Charlie Hebdo to a very English court case involving food writer Nigella Lawson, he proposes a framework for civilised conflict in a world where we are all becoming neighbours.

Particularly timely . . . A powerful, comprehensive book. ECONOMIST
