Others claim it is necessary for self-actualization, the promotion of truth, or the exchange of ideas. Alexander surprisingly contends, in this tightly argued book, that freedom of expression is not a human right.
In this provocative book, Alexander offers a skeptical appraisal of the claim that freedom of expression is a human right. He examines the various contexts in which a right to freedom of expression might be asserted and concludes that such a right cannot be supported in any of these contexts. He argues that some legal protection of freedom of expression is surely valuable, though the form such protection will take will vary with historical and cultural circumstances and is not a matter of human right.
