About the Author:

Nick Cohen is a journalist and commentator for the Observer and Evening Standard. He is also the author of `What's Left'? - the most important and provocative commentaries on how the Left lost its way.

Review:

`Cohen is perhaps the most insightful, thought-provoking and entertaining political writer in Britain today, and comes from the honest tradition of English liberal thought that threads from John Milton to John Stuart Mill and George Orwell' Telegraph, Ed West`Nick Cohen's books are like the best Smiths songs; however depressing the content, the execution is so shimmering, so incandescent with indignation that the overall effect is transcendently uplifting' Julie Burchill, Prospect`It is useful to have all this material in one place, particularly for the benefit of young people, who must be taught about previous disputes over free expression' Hanif Kureishi, Independent`You can read this book, and you probably should' Hugo Rifkind, The Spectator`Into the space vacated by the controversialist Christopher Hitchens we might recruit the sardonic, sceptical columnist Nick Cohen' Iain Finlayson, The Times`Nick Cohen's new book is a corrective to the tendency of internet utopians to think that the web has ushered in an "age of transparency" New Statesman`Writing with passion, wit and erudition, Cohen draws upon the spirit of Orwell and Milton in his call for a fightback against the onslaught on free speech' Metro, 4 stars`You Can't Read This Book. You can, OF COURSE. And you should. Cohen is right about everything that matters.' Standpoint, Anthony Julius
