From the Publisher: Voltaire's comment-"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"--Is frequently quoted by defenders of free speech. Yet it is rare to find someone prepared to defend all freedom of speech, especially if the views expressed are obnoxious or obviously false. So where do we draw the line? How important is our right to freedom of speech? In this accessible and up-to-date Very Short Introduction, Nigel Warburton covers a wide range of controversial free-speech issues, from Holocaust denial and pornography to the status of modern copyright law. The book offers a concise guide to many of the vexing issues concerning our right to speak freely, including: Should a civilized society set limits on freedom of speech? How can we balance free speech with the sensitivities of religious and minority groups? How have digital technology and the Internet changed the debate?

Ernö Goldfinger : the life of an architect by Nigel Warburton( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and German and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first biography of the architect Erno Goldfinger (1902-1987), famous for his commitment to rational design and for lending his name to James Bond's enemy. It is the fascinating story of a man and his struggle to build in a modern style in Britain in the face of contemporary opposition." "Born in Budapest, Goldfinger spent his formative years in Paris in the 1920s where his friends included Max Ernst, Lee Miller and Man Ray. After marrying an Englishwoman, Ursula Blackwell, he moved to England where he built his family home in Hampstead, a property now owned by the National Trust. Post-war commissions led to successful office buildings, and eventually to large-scale projects at Elephant and Castle, and social housing incorporating tower blocks in the East and North of London. Controversial in his lifetime, it is only after his death that his most significant work has been widely recognised as a major contribution to British architecture. In some quarters he is acquiring cult status." "Based on research of the Goldfinger archives, and on interviews with those who knew him, this biography sheds light on the social and artistic interconnections that underpinned the modern movement, and on the controversies surrounding high-rise building in Britain. At the same time it provides a sympathetic portrait of a charismatic and passionate man." "This book will be of particular interest to architects, architectural
