Summary
"In modern liberal democracies rights-based judicial intervention in the policy choices of elected bodies has always been controversial. This book offers a contribution to on-going debates surrounding the judicial role in protecting fundamental human rights, focusing in particular on legislative/executive abridgement of a core freedom in western society - namely, liberty of expression. A range of types of expression are considered, including expression related to electoral processes, political expression in general and sexually explicit forms of expression."--Jacket
