Journalism and Free Speech brings together for the first time an historical and theoretical exploration of journalism and its relationship with the idea of free speech. Though freedom of the press is widely regarded as an essential ingredient to democratic societies, the relationship between the idea of freedom of speech and the practice of press freedom is one that is generally taken for granted. Censorship, in general terms is an anathema. This book explores the philosophical and historical development of free speech and critically examines the ways in which it relates to freedom of the press in practice. The main contention of the book is that the actualisation of press freedom should be seen as encompassing modes of censorship which place pressure upon the principled connection between journalism and freedom of speech. Topics covered include: The Philosophy of Free Speech Journalism and Free Speech Press Freedom and the Democratic Imperative New Media and the Global Public Sphere Regulating Journalism Privacy and Defamation National Security and Insecurity Ownership News, Language Culture and Censorship This book introduces students to a wide range of issues centred around freedom of speech, press freedom and censorship, providing an accessible text for courses on journalism and mass media.

Three years before the events of 9/11, Osama bin Laden sent al Qaeda suicide bombers on a coordinated attack to destroy the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. That day, August 7, 1998, more than two hundred people were killed and thousands were wounded. Responding immediately, the FBI launched the largest international investigation in its history. Within months, suspects were arrested in six countries. The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York indicted twenty-two individuals, including the elusive bin Laden. In February 2001 a landmark trial of four of the accused was held in Manhattan in the shadow of the World Trade Center. Al Qaeda Declares War: The African Embassy Bombings and America's Search for Justice explores the step-by-step procedures the United States employed in analyzing these attacks, identifying the suspects, tracking down and apprehending them, building a case, and prosecuting them. It is this case that established the legal basis for hunting down bin Laden, and the trial makes for a gripping courtroom drama, in which the robust principles of American justice confront the fanaticism of true believers. Tod Hoffman argues forcefully that the process after the 1998 incident stands in marked contrast to the illegal detention, torture, and abrogation of rights that followed 9/11. Indeed, reverberations from the African embassy bombings continue in the ongoing hunt for perpetrators still at large, and in targeted killings by drones. Al Qaeda Declares War dramatically recounts the terror and bloodshed of that day in Africa and shows that America's search for justice afterward offers important lessons for today.

As the most successful conquerors of the ancient world - and arguably the most legalistic people ever - Romans found it necessary to obtain a judicial verdict before they were willing to declare war. But this practice was also tied to the Romans' extreme religiosity. A special class of priests oversaw the process of declaring war, calling on the gods themselves to decide whether the military cause was just. In International Law in Archaic Rome, Alan Watson focuses on the Roman priests known as fetiales, whose sole duties were declaring war, demanding reparations before war began, and making treaties. Before hostilities could begin, the fetiales conducted a process that resembled an early Roman civil trial to determine that the reasons for the war were justified. Scholars have long thought that the fetiales called on the gods as witnesses to defend the Roman cause, but Watson argues that the gods were called to act more impartially, as judges in trial. He observes that the proceedings were not designed to curry favor with the gods, nor did they include a call for vengeance from the gods on the enemy. Watson concludes that the rituals of the fetiales. also called "ambassadors of peace", were real attempts to settle disputes among the ethnically and linguistically related Latin peoples. International Law in Archaic Rome explores some of the apparent paradoxes in the Roman approach to international relations, as reflected in their religious conventions and laws of war.

When the United States Congress declared war in April 1917, Connecticut answered the call to arms. As the capital, Hartford was the hub of the state's war effort. The city hosted major rallies and recruitment drives, and leaders from Hartford directed efforts to inspire patriotism and sacrifice. Allied needs for war materiel and goods were insatiable, and local manufacturers like Colt's Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company worked around the clock to meet the demand. Men and women from the area battled in the trenches, volunteered in the hospitals and canteens and served in the air and on the high seas. A century later, this legacy of service and sacrifice is memorialized by local monuments. Author David Drury traces the extraordinary story of Hartford during World War I.

With evil mounting around the world, God's plan for the Church begins. World-wide persecution of Christianity grows, but a clarion call sounds for the Army of God to rise up from the ashes and unite within the body of Christ as one spiritual force against the approaching storm. The Lord raises up young men and women with solemn faces and heavy hearts-battle-arrayed and ready for war. Their swords are sharp and their arrows pierce the darkness and bring forth light into all dark places. He pours His Spirit upon the old and the young, and they quickly come up. They bind together and look toward Heaven. As one, they kneel before the altar and unleash thunderous supplication before the throne room of God. They are of a multitude of all races, nationalities, and beliefs but Jesus Christ, their Lord, binds them together. Their differences do not matter. They are spirit-filled and move of one accord. The darkness shall not touch them. Their lights shine forth into the darkness, and the darkness cowers before the name of Jesus Christ on their lips. The darkness seeks to steal, kill, and destroy, but the Army of God prepares to die-there is power in death-and there is no other choice. The time is now. In nearly every book on end-time prophecy to date, the story begins with the rapture and tells of God's plan for the end-after Christians have been taken up into Heaven. What if the plan started before the rapture? God calls His believers to the front lines in preparation of the approaching spiritual storm. Christians are living in one of the most pivotal times in human history-at the climax of the story for God's plan for the Church! With revelations and personal prophecies backed by scripture, A Voyage with God calls God's followers to rise up in fulfillment of biblical prophecy as the race toward the end begins.
