Provocative, original, and incisive, Demaske has delivered a major work essential for the vital task of re-imagining our rights to free expression, our needs for inclusive liberties, and our demands for a fundamental re-awakening of democratic principles. Its influence will long be felt among critical theorists, feminist and legal scholars, and all those brave enough to dream of a future shaped by a discourse of equality, full participation, and justice. -- Robin Andersen, Fordham University
Modern Power and Free Speech puts the complexities of power where they belong in free-speech theory-at the center of the discussion. Chris Demaske skillfully brings together a variety of critical approaches to challenge those who hang onto inadequate liberal doctrines or are enamored with irrelevant postmodern ramblings. -- Robert Jensen, Director of the Senior Fellows Honors Program of the College of Communication, University of Texas at Austin
[The] contrast between the reasoning in First Amendement cases and the proposed three-pronged test, when applied to several contemporary First Amendendment issues will be appreciated by readers of all levels. . . . Recommended. * CHOICE, October 2009 *
