In a series of landmark decisions since 1990, Canadian courts have shaped a distinctive approach to the regulation of obscenity, hate literature, and child pornography. Missing from the debate, however, has been any attempt to determine whether the legal status quo can be justified by reference to a framework of moral/political principles. The Hateful and the Obscene is intended to fill that gap. The Hateful and the Obscene is an interpretation of freedom of expression that combines serious philosophical thought with a focus on Canadian law, thus offering the breadth capable of dealing with both obscenity and hate literature

In this remarkable and comprehensive anthology, many of Canada's leading sexuality studies scholars examine the fundamental role that sexuality has played -- and continues to play -- in the building of our nation, and in our national narratives, myths, and anxieties about Canadian identity. Covering both historical and contemporary perspectives on law and criminal justice, organizing and resistance, health and medicine, labour, education, marriage and family, sport, popular and youth culture, and visual media, these essays also integrate marginalities such as race, class, and gender. This massive interdisciplinary collection is essential for the Canadian sexuality studies classroom, and for anyone interested in the mythologies and realities of queer life in Canada. Features: explores the role of the state in regulating sexuality and constructing citizenship as well activist strategies of resistance offers a unique Canadian perspective on queer history and politics, discussing topics such as RCMP surveillance, abuse in residential schools, and the "problem" of Canadian identity adopts an interdisciplinary approach, with contributors from the fields of gender and sexuality studies, sociology, history, criminology, political science, cultural studies, health studies, and education, as well as chapters by professionals, artists, and activists
