Review:

"Krotoszynski's conclusions are revealing and forcefully presented. This is especially so when they are based on the author's sophisticated and copiously documented comparison of the U.S. with four advanced legal systems committed to participatory politics. The book undoubtedly challenges many of us who smugly accept American 'exceptionalism' in freedom of speech and the press. . . . Krotoszynski helps us appreciate the value of comparative free speech with a new, penetrating perspective."
-"Law and Politics Book Review",

"Suggests that First Amendment scholars might find it useful to consider how other nations, committed to democratic government, have sought to resolve the constant tension between protecting speech while also securing equality."
-"New York Law Journal",

"There are very few scholars who are willing to read as widely in the law of the world as Krotoszynski, and very few who are capable of forming such confident and intelligent judgments."
-James Whitman, Yale Law School

"The uniquely American sense of freedom that makes the First Amendment so beloved and so respected in its homeland is precisely what makes it a difficult model for constitutional protection of expression in other political systems. In this survey of free speech policies in Canada, Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom, Krotosyznski introduces American students and scholars of constitutional law to a diverse range of culturally contingent approaches to protecting the freedom of expression in other industrialized countries. . . . As Krotosyznski's fascinating project demonstrates, comparative constitutional analysis challenges us as Americans to examine critically the cultural assumptions underlying our legal system."
-Jim Chen, University of Minnesota Law School

"An important contribution in support of constitutional exceptionalism. . . . The great gift of Krotoszynski's book is to turn our attention to a knottier subject on which there is far less consensus."
-"Michigan Law Review",
