What sort of communicative activities are actually covered and specifically protected by the Constitution? What is a public forum? What is the clear and present danger test for political free speech? How are the courts grappling with a definition for obscenity? What are the rights of the press? What is commercial speech? When does the right to privacy overrule the right to free press? Are picket lines the same as demonstrations? These are just a few of the questions students will think about as they study how the Supreme Court has responded to these issues over the past century.

Review:

"Freedom of Speech, Press and Assembly is a readable and succinct discussion of the Supreme Court's interpretations of the First Amendment....Each of the substantive chapters is organized so that readers can easily understand the Supreme Court's approach to various freedom of expression issues....The book is highly recommended as a supplementary text for lower-level courses in journalism and mass communication. It will be particularly useful for introductory classes in mass communication in society, communication law, or journalism history."-Journalism & Mass Communication Education

"Dr. McWhirter explains how laws evolved....with Supreme Court case decisions inviting students to analyze decisions and their results."-The Bookwatch

"Well-written, concise and comprehensive....should be welcomed with gratitude by everyone interested in drafting a better understanding of the role of judicial review in the American political system."-Law Books In Review

"Written by a lawyer who specializes in employment and constitutional law, these titles discuss areas of federal law and significant cases in which the U.S. Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution on such issues as free press and prayer in public schools. Very well-written and documented, the texts can serve as both background reading and reference sources. Highly recommended."-InfoTech
