Summary A collection of loosely connected essays, all of which, are related to the issues of freedom of speech and the freedom of the press. Most of the essays attempt to find some sort of link between the two paradigms of freedom of speech prevalent on the two sides of the Atlantic that are, more often than not, extremely hard to reconcile with each other.
