In America we like to think we live in a land of liberty, where everyone can say whatever they want. Throughout our history, however, we have also been quick to censor people who offend or frighten us. In their brief but bracing book, Free Speech, historian Jonathan Zimmerman and Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist Signe Wilkinson tell the story of free speech in America and make the case for why we should care about it today.
