The Springs of Liberty: The Satiric Tradition and Freedom of Speech

Ön Kapak
Northwestern University Press, 1999 - 154 sayfa
The Springs of Liberty takes up questions of literary history and theory and explores sources of power harnessed by modern political doctrines and the journalism that conveys them to the public. These forces of opinion are traced to a tradition deeper and older than either: satire. In that tradition--its power, diversity, and license--the author locates the spirit of free speech.
