Reviewed by Jonathan L. Larson, Grinnell College
No. 8, January 2018, Global Studies Literature Review

Larson reviews the current landscape of free speech and diversity discussions. Considering recent works by Charb (2015), Coates (2015), and Garton Ash (2016), he examines perspectives on traditional concepts of freedom, media critique, and the African American experience. Relating these to international education and global studies, Larson adds a valuable overview of contemporary discourse.
