"Guiora's book distinguishes itself from much of what has been written in the field by a realistic estimate of the threat which terrorism poses. It is also the first book that convincingly tackles the problem of how freedom of speech and terrorism are related. Guiora's expert knowledge makes him an ideal guide through this subject. He gives a vivid impression of the way many policy makers, politicians, and civil servants think about the problem of terrorism."
-Professor Paul Cliteur,

"This book will provoke much debate in the legal community and far beyond. While I disagree with Amos Guiora's conclusions, I applaud his candid and compelling discussion of a challenging question that should certainly be forthrightly debated: whether legal protections for religious speech and conduct should be reduced in order to counter the threat posed by religiously motivated terrorists. Even for those of us who urge that the answer should be 'No,' Guiora's impassioned work must be reckoned with."

"The book is readable and engaging, and perhaps most of all very provocative...Guiora's book FREEDOM FROM RELIGION is part of Oxford University Press's Terrorism and Global Justice series, which the press bills on the book jacket as publising 'thought provoking and topical monographs.' Guiora's book is that -- though provoking and topical...The book is useful for a wide range of upper level undergraduate and graduate courses. It can fit in with courses on civil rights and civil liberties, religion and politics, terrorism, and comparative constitutional law."

"Whatever one thinks of Guiora's suggestions, he has performed a notable service in confronting the threat that terrorism poses and the question of where a line should properly be drawn with regard to free speech. The questions he addresses will be with us for some time, and he has provided an important road map of the issues involved. Readers will reach many different conclusions, but Guiora has placed the question on the table, and, for that, all of us are enriched."

"For my work as member of the Dutch parliament, I have to read many books about many subjects. Among those subjects is freedom of speech. When I read a description of the book Freedom from Religion, I was very enthusiastic right away. My enthusiasm only grew as I read the book itself. It is written in a clear, accessible style, and I can recommend it to everyone who is interested in one of the most challenging problems that our society faces today."
-Lilian Helder, Member of Parliament, the Netherlands
