Speaking Back; Editorial page; Title page; LCC data; Dedication; Table of contents; Acknowledgements; Abbreviations; Abstract; Introduction; Chapter 1: The problem; Chapter 2: Expanding speech liberties; Chapter 3: Speech as conduct; Chapter 4: Hate speech as harmful conduct; Chapter 5: Australia, the UK and the USA compared; Chapter 6: A policy of 'speaking back'; Conclusion; Notes; References; Appendix; Index; Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture.
Summary: This book proposes an original policy framework for addressing hate speech. Gelber argues that a policy designed to provide support to affected groups and communities to enable them to speak back when hate speech occurs, is a more useful way of addressing the harms of hate speech than punitive measures. She suggests that "speaking back" allows the affected groups to contradict the messages contained in the words of the hate speakers, and to counteract the silencing, disempowering and marginalising effects of hate speech. Gelber's argument uniquely synthesises the ideas of defending the importa.
