Gag Rule: On the Suppression of Dissent and Stifling of Democracy
by Lewis Lapham
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0143035029, Paperback)Award-winning columnist Lewis Lapham issues an urgent new polemic about the strangling of meaningful dissent—the lifeblood of democracy—at the hands of a government and media increasingly beholden to the wealthy few. Never before, Lapham argues, have voices of protest been so locked out of the mainstream conversation, so marginalized and muted by a government that recklessly disregards civil liberties. In the midst of the "war on terror," we face a crisis of democracy as serious as any in our history. Gag Rule is a rousing and necessary call to action in defense of the right to raise our voices and have those voices heard.
