9780070633919: Freedom of Speech in the United States

The new edition of this text continues to offer an accessible historical survey and analysis of free-speech issues and cases in the US, also providing a history of free speech in England. In the new edition, the expansion of topics such as "free press-fair trial" makes the book suitable for journalism and media law courses. Thoroughly updated, the second edition includes recent, relevant US rulings and coverage of important timely topics, such as freedom of artistic expression, and all major constraints in speech content. There are new chapters on institutional constraints, including expanded treatment of freedom of expression in schools in the US (ch. 11), and there is greater discussion of contemporary First Amendment theories. The book provides study aids with chapter outlines, end-of-chapter summaries, exercises and readings. The pedagogy also includes a full glossary, a table of cases, and a topical index. Also available is an instructor's manual (0-07-065505-7).
