When the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published cartoons of the prophet Muhammad in 2005, Denmark found itself at the center of a global battle about the freedom of speech. In The Tyranny of Silence, Flemming Rose, then the paper’s culture editor and principally responsible for publishing the cartoons, writes about the people and experiences that have influenced his understanding of the crisis, including meetings with dissidents from the former Soviet Union and ex-Muslims living in Europe. He provides a personal account of an event that has shaped the debate about what it means to be a citizen in a democracy and how to coexist in a world that is increasingly multicultural, multireligious, and multiethnic. Now available as a fully unabridged audiobook on Audible.com.
