Format: Paperback
this book examines how free speech in this country intersects with assaultive speech.it challenges the thought that all speech should be protected, and engages you to examine the intent behind many words that we take for granted.
matsuda is known as a constitutional scholar and passionate inquisitor into the blurry intersection of race, gender, the law, and language. whether you agree with her views or not, this book and the ideas put forth will challenge you to examine your own beliefs and expectations of what your civil rights are.

Format: Hardcover
Critical reading to see the totalitarian desires of the Left and the Left's political demands' irreconcilability with the Constitution.

Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic are enemies of the Constituition and the individual liberties it tried to guarantee.

The endgame of Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic is kangaroo courts decided by emotion unencumbered by reasoning and law - Bolshevik death camps in the name of justice.
