Under the Shadow of Weimar: Democracy, Law, and Racial Incitement in Six Countries

Synopsis

This volume, written by authorities on the legal systems of France, Britain, Germany, the United States, Israel, and Canada, explores the growing confrontation between democracy and racist incitement. The authors consider current and prospective laws as they trace the efforts to enact and enforce laws that can curb racism in the early stages of its growth without violating democratic freedoms.
