“Freedom of speech is under assault from a direction that the United States and the West generally rejected centuries ago. “Blasphemy,” as some define it, may not be pretty, but the suppression of speech is profoundly ugly, not to mention dangerous to a free and open society. This book explains why.”
New York State Assemblyman and the author of the Freedom to Report Terrorism Act and the Libel Tourism Protection Act.
“Winning the war on terrorism requires an aggressive defense against ‘lawfare’—the misuse of our civil legal system by terrorism’s facilitators, propagandists and apologists. Aaron Meyer and Brooke Goldstein have produced an essential primer on ‘lawfare’ which policymakers at every level of government should read, and act on.”

“Those of us who have been at the business end of lawfare— Islamism’s latest heavy weapon against America and the Constitution—will regard this book as the leading treatment of radical Islam’s new threat to freedom and national security. Meyer and Goldstein respond with a careful, authoritative and highly readable guide to the Silencing War. Pioneering scholars and practitioners in the lawfare field, they take us through its legal and policy ramifications, and offer Americans the practical, workable solutions needed to come to grips with this historic, subversive challenge.“
