Freedom of SpeechBook - 2005
Free speech is one of the most cherished rights of Americans today, but American history is replete with conflict over whether people have gone too far in exercising this right. This interesting anthology examines the historical origins of the free speech clause of the First Amendment, the evolving interpretations of the First Amendment by the Supreme Court, and the changing public attitudes toward free speech. Included are discussions of such issues as wartime dissent, censorship, hate speech, and flag burning.
