Summary
"Americans should not just tolerate dissent. They should encourage it. In this provocative and wide-ranging book, Steven Shiffrin makes this case by arguing that dissent should be promoted because it lies at the heart of a core American value: free speech. He contends, however, that the country's major institutions - including the Supreme Court and the mass media - wrongly limit dissent. And he reflects on how society and the law should change to encourage nonconformity."--BOOK JACKET
