Not two years after the release of Unlearning Liberty: Campus Censorship and the End of American Debate, FIRE President Greg Lukianoff is releasing a new (short) book. In this “broadside,” Freedom from Speech, Greg covers several disturbing trends over the past year, from colleges punishing individuals for offensive utterances to the phenomenon of “disinvitation season.”
Here’s what the publisher has to say:
Greg Lukianoff argues that the threats to free speech go well beyond “political correctness” or “liberal groupthink.” As global populations increasingly expect not just physical comfort in their lives, but intellectual comfort as a kind of right, threats to freedom of speech are only going to become more intense as time goes by. Lukianoff offers potential solutions to ensure freedom of speech survives in the long battle to come.
FIRE is excited to be announcing Greg’s latest book. You can pre-order a paperback copy of Freedom from Speech on Amazon now for $5.39. (And if you order using this link, FIRE will get some extra money from Amazon!)
