Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The debate over speech codes for colleges and universities centers on two conflicting goals: the need to insure free speech and the desire to limit racist, sexist, and similar speech to insure equal educational opportunities. Shiell (Univ. of Wisconsin, Stout) presents a detailed analysis of the historical, legal, and philosophical arguments for both sides. He covers the important thinkers on the subject along with various codes instituted by schools like the University of Michigan and Stanford, and he is particularly good in analyzing arguments for codes based on Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Also appearing are the major court cases regarding speech codes. Shiell comes out against such restrictions, seeing them as potential weapons against the groups they are designed to protect. This well-written work stands as required reading for anyone interested in the debate; contrasting views appear in Laura Lederer's The Price We Pay: The Case Against Racist Speech, Hate Propaganda, and Pornography (LJ 10/1/95). Highly recommended for all libraries.AStephen L. Hupp, Univ. of Pittsburgh at Johnstown Lib., PA

Format: Hardcover
This book provides the reader with a solid background in the hate speech forum. Specific cases set the groundwork for current rulings on censorship cases. Great for those interested in censorship/freedom of speech issues.
