In this Constitutional Commentary review piece, Allan considers Jeremy Waldron's arguments for hate speech laws in Waldron's book THE HARM IN HATE SPEECH. Allan finds them all lacking and ultimately unpersuasive. The review is not premised on a parsing of precedents. It considers Waldron's case from first principles.
