schema:description"The design of this book is both interdisciplinary and comparative, offering historical, philosophical, legal, sociological, political and media perspectives of renowned scholars from the United Kingdom Israel, the United States and Canada, They analyse how different societies try to cope with and find answers for attacks against them by political extremists, cultural chauvinists, terrorists, hate groups and other radical movements. The essays provide a fresh and comprehensive analysis that undoubtedly enriches the literature on this intricate issue of how democracies should deal with illiberal challenges."--Jacket."@en
