Nadine Strossen is a prominent lawyer and former president of the American Civil Liberties Union from 1991-2008, and currently a professor at NYU Law School. In her recently published book, HATE: Why We Should Resist It with Free Speech, Not Censorship, Strossen explores how speech is protected under the constitution and how free speech can be used to counter hate speech. With her expert knowledge of the Constitution, Strossen offers useful and applicable strategies for achieving positive outcomes without violating Constitutional rights. From government surveillance and decriminalization of drugs, to sexual harassment and more, Strossen makes complex issues accessible through the use of illuminating statistics and true-life stories.
