The respect agenda

Index on Censorship contributor Oliver Kamm is appalled by Yale University Press’s censorship of The Cartoons that Shook the World by Jytte Klausen, an account of the Danish Mohammed cartoons controversy. Yale decided to publish the book about the cartoons without, er, actually publishing the cartoons.

Oliver describes Yale’s decision as “craven”, and decries the newfound idea that “respect” for religion is a legitimate reason to curb free speech.
