Editorial Reviews for this title:
The Third Edition provides in freestanding form all the chapters and materials relating to the First Amendment from Sullivan and Gunther's Constitutional Law, Sixteenth Edition. It offers in-depth coverage of the freedoms of speech, press and association, as well as the free exercise and establishment clauses. This casebook grounds students in traditional First Amendment law and theory while exposing them to cutting-edge contemporary First Amendment problems, from controlling speech over the Internet to regulating money in modern political campaigns. It also covers ongoing clashes between the values of religious liberty and church-state separation in such matters as Ten Commandment displays, school vouchers, and faith-based initiatives. Students using this casebook will be well-equipped to litigate any area of First Amendment law. It includes all key First Amendment cases through the 2006-2007 Supreme Court Term, including the Court's latest word on speech by labor unions, speech by public school students, and limits on regulation of campaign finance.
