About this product
- DescriptionFresh empirical evidence of porgraphy's negative effects and the resurgence of feminist and conservative critiques have caused local, state, and federal officials to reassess the porgraphy issue. In The New Politics of Porgraphy, Donald Alexander Downs explores the contemporary antiporgraphy movement and addresses difficult questions about the limits of free speech. Drawing on official transcripts and extensive interviews, Downs recreates and analyzes landmark cases in Minneapolis and Indianapolis. He argues persuasively that both conservative and liberal camps are often characterized by extreme intolerance which hampers open policy debate and may ultimately threaten our modern doctrine of free speech. Downs concludes with a balanced and nuanced discussion of what First Amendment protections porgraphy should be afforded. This provocative and interdisciplinary work will interest students of political science, women's studies, civil liberties, and constitutional law.
