Just what is dissent?


Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, DC recently hosted Ron Collins and David Skover for a reading and signing of their new book, On Dissent: Its Meaning in America. In the video of the event below, they discuss: Just what is dissent? Americans claim to value it and strive to protect it, but can we define it, or is it one of those vagaries we know when we see? Collins and Skover use a range of contexts, from the legal to the philosophical to the linguistic, to formulate the meaning(s) of dissent.
