I picked up copies of Kembrew McLeod’s updated Freedom of Expression: Resistance and Represssion in the Age of Intellectual Property and Christopher Finan’s brand new history of free speech in the US (this one at a third of the cover price!) today. Coming out of the store, a streetside bookseller had a copy of Stanley Fish’s classic There’s No Such Thing As Free Speech…and it’s a Good Thing, Too (which cost me two whole dollars). There’s a story or a moral in there somewhere, but I can’t work it out.
