Overview

Restoring Free Speech and Liberty on Campus by Donald Alexander Downs

Downs (political science, law and journalism, U. of Wisconsin, Madison and research fellow, Independent Institute) examines the deprivations of free speech, due process and other civil liberties caused by speech codes on American university campuses. Using his personal experience and four case studies, Downs argues that, rather than promoting equal respect and tolerance of diversity, policies restricting academic freedom and civil liberty have proved divisive and have compromised the exchange of ideas that is necessary for the pursuit of truth and a meaningful education.
