"Admirably clear, . . . wise, up-to-the-minute and wide-ranging. . . . Free Speech encourages us to take a breath, look hard at the facts, and see how well-tried liberal principles can be applied and defended in daunting new circumstances."—Edmund Fawcett, New York Times Book Review

"Particularly timely. . . . Garton Ash argues forcefully that . . . there is an increasing need for freer speech. . . . A powerful, comprehensive book."—Economist

"Timothy Garton Ash rises to the task of directing us how to live civilly in our connected diversity."—John Lloyd, Financial Times

"Illuminating and thought-provoking. . . . [Garton Ash’s] larger project is not merely to defend freedom of expression, but to promote civil, dispassionate discourse, within and across cultures, even about the most divisive and emotive subjects."—Faramerz Dabhoiwala, The Guardian

"A brave and admirable attempt to construct a platform on which more people can find common ground, even if only on how to disagree without killing each other.  Whether the ten principles are used or not, they are a considerable achievement."—George Brock, Times Literary Supplement

"A thorough and well-argued contribution to the quest for global free speech norms."—Kirkus Reviews

"Garton Ash impresses with fact-filled, ideas-rich discussion that is routinely absorbing and illuminating."—Malcolm Forbes, American Interest

"Timothy Garton Ash’s new book Free Speech: Ten Principles for a Connected World is a rare thing: a worthwhile contribution to a debate without two developed sides. Ash does an excellent job laying out the theoretical and practical bases for the western liberal positions on free speech."—Malcolm Harris, New Republic

"An informative and bracing defense of free speech liberalism in the Internet age. . . . In a world where free speech can never be taken for granted, Garton Ash’s free speech liberalism is a good place to start any discussion."—David Luban, New York Review of Books

"I recommend addition of this title to the academic library collection. . . . Garton Ash has contributed to the ongoing dialogue about the role of free speech and how it works in our society."—Margaret Butler, Law Library Journal

"A major piece of cultural analysis, sane, witty and urgently important. Timothy Garton Ash exemplifies the 'robust civility' he recommends as an antidote to the pervasive unhappiness, nervousness and incoherence around freedom of speech, rightly seeing the basic challenge as how we create a cultural and moral climate in which proper public argument is possible and human dignity affirmed."—Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge, and former Archbishop of Canterbury

"Timothy Garton Ash aspires to articulate norms that should govern freedom of communication in a transnational world. His work is original and inspiring. Free Speech is an unfailingly eloquent and learned book that delights as well as instructs."—Robert Post, Dean and Sol & Lillian Goldman Professor of Law, Yale Law School

"There are still countless people risking their lives to defend free speech and struggling to make lonely voices heard in corners around the world where voices are hard to hear. Let us hope that this book will bring confidence and hope to this world-as-city. I believe it will exert great influence."—Murong Xuecun, author of Leave Me Alone: A Novel of Chengdu
