In Outlawing Genocide Denial , historian and political scientist Guenter Lewy scrutinizes the controversial practice of criminalizing genocide denial. Holocaust denial can be viewed as another form of hatred against Jews and restricting it can be understood as a way of preventing hate speech. Germany has made it a crime punishable by law. Other European countries have adopted similar laws. While the rationales for criminalizing speech seems reasonable, Lewy asks readers to look again and to consider carefully the dangers of doing so. His discussion neither dismisses the ramifications of genocide denial nor justifies it- he instead looks closely at the possible risks of government-enforced interpretations of history. By outlawing genocide denial, governments set a precedent for dictating historical "truth" and how events should be interpreted. Such government restrictions can be counterproductive in a democratic society that values freedom of speech. Lewy examines these and related ideas through the analysis of historical and current examples. He posits his own conclusion but leaves it to readers to view the evidence and arguments and to form their own opinions.

    Thank you, Hugh et al.These Indie numbers are encouraging, especially since just a few years ago the stigma was so much stronger against self-publishing.On another note, my titles have seen a steady sales-demise at B&N while staying consistent or growing at Amazon, Apple, Kobo and Google Play. I wonder how common this is. Have you done a retailer comparison study or is one in the works?

      squarespace doesn't have an online booking engine for you to operate a hotel / bed & breakfast type of business. But they do suggest a few external widgets that you can insert into your Squarespace site using the "inject code" block.

      There is no "incorrect" answer because the name should be decided upon by the owners of the restaurant. Technically, however, the apostrophe will usually be placed with the second name only when two people co-own something. Your writing "Sam and Rosco's Restaurant" would be correct following this rule.

    Another option, is to build your website with Squarespace, then use WordPress + IgnitionDeck to power the crowdfunding side of things. It's not my favorite option as it requires you to manage two separate websites. But a possibility nevertheless.
