About this product
- DescriptionIn Gecide Denials and the Law, Ludovic Hennebel and Thomas Hochmann offer a thorough study of the relationship between law and gecide denial from the perspectives of specialists from six countries. This controversial topic provokes strong international reactions involving emotion caused by denial along with concerns about freedom of speech. The authors offer an in-depth study of the various legal issues raised by the denial of crimes against humanity, presenting arguments both in favor of and in opposition to prohibition of this expression. They do t adopt a pro or contra position, but include chapters written by proponents and opponents of a legal prohibition on gecide denial. Hennebel and Hochmann fill a void in academic publications by comparatively examining this issue with a collection of original essays. They tackle this diverse topic comprehensively, addressing t only the theoretical and philosophical aspects of denial, but also the specific problems faced by judges who implement anti-denial laws. Gecide Denials and the Law will provoke discussion of many theoretical questions regarding free speech, including the relationship between freedom of expression and truth, hate, memory, and history.
