The Liberal Tightrope: Brettschneider on Free Speech, 79 Brook. L. Rev. 1047 (2014)
Corey Brettschneider's book takes up one of the most important questions in moral, political, and legal philosophywhat are the grounds and limits of toleration-by focusing on the problem of hate speech. I admire his aspiration of crafting a middle position that defends robust free speech protections while also subjecting those espousing hateful viewpoints to "democratic persuasion."
