Duke University publishes book about Mohammad cartoons

Voltaire Press at Duke University has published a book “Muhammad: The "Banned" Images” by Dr. Gary Hull that includes reprinting the 12 cartoons that originally ran in the Jyllands-Posten that ignited an international violent reaction in the Muslim world. The book also includes several other images from William Blake, Gustave Dore, Salvador Dali, and several Muslim artists from the Ottoman, Safavid, and Mughal empires. Hull is the director of the Program on Values and Ethics in the Marketplace at Duke University.

The description on Amazon.com says the book is “a defense of free speech and First Amendment rights, with a historical survey of images of Muhammad that includes 31 full-color, full-page illustrations.”

Somehow I doubt that Duke will get burned down now.

And neither would those wimps at Yale.

Good forward in the book (look inside on amazon listing). Gary Hull is not pulling any punches.

Eh.

Now, a book singing the praises of Dean Smith … THAT would provoke unrest at Duke.
