About the Author

In 2008, under the glare of the controversy over the Danish cartoons, one of Flemming Rose's few appearances on an American campus was sponsored by Dr. Gary Hull, director of the Program on Values and Ethics in the Marketplace at Duke University. Dr Hull has for five years taught and supervised the Power of Ideas, one of Duke's most popular honors programs. In late 2001, he made national news when he posted an article calling for a strong military response to the 9/11 attacks. Duke pulled his website, but reinstated it after the action gained wide publicity. Dr. Hull is editor of The Abolition of Anti-Trust and co-editor of The Ayn Rand Reader. His articles and op-eds have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Philadelphia Inquirer, Chicago Tribune, Forbes.com, and Barron's. He has served as an ethics advisor to major corporations and has lectured to business groups (The Young Presidents' Organization), corporations (Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline), and audiences at major universities (NYU, Harvard, Stanford, the University of Michigan, UC Berkeley, UCLA). Dr. Hull earned his Ph.D. in Philosophy from The Claremont Graduate School, and previously taught business ethics in the MBA programs at The Claremont Graduate School and Duke's Fuqua School of Business.

It takes courage for an academic to flout the politically correct system by doing something like this.

So the Islamists intimidated Yale University Press into putting out a book called "The Cartoons that Shook the World" but removing every single illustration? Even the laudatory ones from the Mughal era?

Ah, but that was before the Salafists and the Muslim Brotherhood started calling the shots.

Even Amazon played games with this, by delaying the mailing of Dr. Hull's book. They claimed a waiting time but I spoke to Dr. Hull myself-- he had thousands of the darn things waiting to go out. Still, when I ordered it, Amazon took at least two weeks to send it to me. Being an Amazon book seller, I know that's against the rules for the rest of us.

Be sure to read Dr. Hull's excellent introduction in this book. He uses the example of Yale graduate Nathan Hale, who was hung by the British for his speech.

And some of the illustrations are magnificent. Such a shame that the "extremists" who shut Yale Press up are haters of beauty. There are many lovely illustrations here and we owe a debt to Dr. Hull for being willing to put this book out there.

Get the book. Put the anti-free speech folks in their place.

It's vital that Western Civilization not surrender deeply held values (one of which is the right to free speech - freedom of expression) to the alleged cultural sensitivities of others. If some Muslims are offended by a discussion, or a depiction, of Muhammad, they have - in our world - the same right that I do when I see a copy of "The Communist Manifesto" offered for sale in a bookstore. I don't have to read it. If I find the ideas repugnant, I can offer my own, or those of others, in response, but - in our world - we don't burn books (let alone those who wrote them) merely because we disagree with their content.

By reviewing the historical treatment of Muhammad in Western literature, this book shows that there is nothing new about the attempt to do so in the Danish cartoons, and that some Western publishers (especially Yale University Press) are wrong to have abandoned free speech in order to appease Muslim extremists.

By defying the Islamist hooligans and publishing these images Dr. Hull fills the gap in the dialogue. Now we can all see the images that have been so contentiously discussed.

Voltaire Press had the courage to publish some of the numerous images of Mohammad when Yale University Press and countless newspapers and other publications shied away from printing those images, either from political correctness ("We must respect the religion, not offend Muslim feelings, etc."), or from fear of reprisals from the Offended-Muslim-Brigade (because of the thuggery and intimidation Jihadists are notorious for). If one truly has the conviction that one has the right to tell the truth about anything, and especially about Islam, the best policy is to tell it. These days that policy entails some risk of reprisal, and even of lawsuits filed by Muslim advocacy groups (e.g., CAIR), most of which were founded by or are supported by the Muslim Brotherhood, and Islamic organization with ties to Hamas and dedicated to conquering as much of the West as possible. It's unfortunate that both the MSM and our own government refuse to acknowledge that Islam is an enemy, as much of one as was Nazism and Communism.
