Editorial Reviews

Review

"Broadcast and Internet indecency are fascinating areas of research. The issue of whether offensive speech that isn't legally obscene should be regulated has captured the interest of numerous legal scholars since the 1970s. In this book, Jeremy Lipschultz explores indecency from legal, social and theoretical perspectives. This alone makes this work an important contribution to the discourse of freedom of speech, especially "offensive" speech.

Those of us who have studied the regulation of indecency know that this subject can become clouded by self-righteousness and politics. I welcome Jeremy Lipschultz's effort to bring such a broad range of approaches into the study of indecency regulation. He certainly has done a great deal of work in this area and this book allows him to put it all together into a coherent and meaningful whole."
