Abstract:     
In this book I offer a skeptical appraisal of the claim that freedom of expression is a human right. I examine the various contexts in which a right of freedom of expression might be asserted and conclude that such a right cannot be supported in any of these contexts. I argue that some legal protection of freedom of expression is surely valuable, though the form such protection will take will vary with historical and cultural circumstances and is not a matter of human right.
