More or Less: Democracy & New media
More Or Less is about democracy, free speech and new media, separately and together.

The book also includes first hand and detailed accounts of legal cases, which have had far reaching consequences for individuals and disparate, disadvantaged groups of people. The second part of the book features fine creative writing by young people, winners in the Future Leaders Writing Prize.
