Reviews

'There may be no greater challenge to freedom theory today than the triangulation of hate, speech, and religion. Professor Moon is Canada's foremost authority on religious and expressive freedom, and his newest book, Putting Faith in Hate, is at the forefront of timely and critical scholarship on the intersection of these values.' Jamie Cameron, Osgoode Hall Law School, Ontario
'Moon is an outstanding scholar. His work displays a powerful analytic mind, thorough analysis, a dominant command of the literature, and a wise pragmatic approach to the subjects he discusses. Moon's book will be of considerable interest to scholars across a range of disciplines. It certainly will be a must read for anyone who wants to understand the issues involved in hate speech regulation. And it provides an illuminating survey of the case law that would be accessible and of interest to journalists and other lay readers.' Steve Shiffrin, Charles Frank Reavis, Sr Professor of Law Emeritus at Cornell Law School
'An insightful and accessible examination of the role of religion in the application of hate speech laws, by a leading scholar in the field.' Nadine Strossen, New York Law School
