|Lewis H. Lapham
Editor of Harpers Magazine and author of numerous books including Theater of War and Gag Rule.
In Gag Rule, Lapham argues that in the midst of this countrys War on Terror; we face a crisis of democracy as serious as any in our historythe right to speak out against the powers that be, and to have our voices heard. This, asserts Laphammarks not only the end of true, meaningful dissent but the renunciation of our most important civil liberty: the freedom to disagree. Gag Rule is a rousing call to action from one of Americas most provocative writers.
