Summary
  • "Indecency - arguably among the most provocative and incendiary issues in today's media - is speech at the edge of social tolerance. This volume examines broadcast and Internet indecency from legal and social perspectives, utilizing current cases and well-publicized examples. In exploring the issues associated with this highly controversial area, author Jeremy Harris Lipschultz makes headway toward an understanding of how indecency, as communication on the fringes of social norms, functions in defining free expression through specific types of speech. He contrasts conceptualizations of indecency and obscenity, synthesizes case law and social research, and develops theoretical generalizations for future research and study. His work provides a comprehensive examination of broadcast and Internet indecency issues and cases that serve to test generalizations about freedom of expression and one's ability to define free speech."
  • "The book is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate courses in communication law, telecommunication regulation, First Amendment issues, and free expression theory. Additionally, the book may be used as a supplemental text in mass communication theory, mass communication and society, sociology, and political science courses."--BOOK JACKET
