My new book, Islam and Controversy: The Politics of Free Speech after Rushdie was published earlier this month, and I thought I would alert people to it, and to a couple of articles I wrote to accompany its publication. There is one I wrote for  (I’m not totally happy about the title, but that was out of my hands), and one for The Conversation. Please feel free to link, tweet, re-tweet, facebook them or whatever.

With the piece for The Conversation, I have been involved in an in-depth debate with the writer and free speech campaigner Kenan Malik in the comments section. Have a look and see what you think and do feel free to join in. The more that people debate these questions, the better.
