not yet rated|write a review
Although Americans tend to take the concept and protection of free expression for granted, free press and free speech are at best only tentatively established in some nations of the world. Covering prehistoric times to mid-1998, this book provides a year-by-year report of the efforts to free the press throughout the world. Since the American concept of free speech came from England, the early chapters place a heavy emphasis on events in England, while later chapters include other nations throughout the world. Ingelhart provides a thorough overview of free press and free speech principles and the continuing effort to extend those freedoms almost everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

?This book is a most valuable as a handy, one-volume collection of anecdotes and one-line descriptions of many of the struggles of press and speech freedoms humankind has witnessed and endured since antiquity. For the teacher of journalism history or communication law course, the book provides impressive examples and information to enliven and enrich lectures on press freedom topics. For the researcher, the volume can serve as a starting point by providing possible research topics and clues to where to begin the search for further information. For the reader intersted in getting a sense of the "big picture" of free speech and press struggles throughout time, this volume fits the bill nicely.??American Journalism (Editor's Choice)
