Examines major challenges to the First Amendment and focuses on the extremely important paradigm shift of freedom of expression in the post-9/11 era.

The first edition of Silencing the Opposition examined major challenges to the First Amendment using illustrative case studies of the various forms of governmental suppression in U.S. history. The essays provided a history of how governmental forces have used rhetorical strategies in simple and sophisticated ways to silence opponents. By studying which strategies are effective, how they evolve, and how they are unmasked, the authors offered a way to combat the strategies in the future. This second edition of Silencing the Opposition includes a revised introduction and conclusion, updated chapters, and three new chapters: one on the Suffragist movement; one on campaign spending reforms; and one on issues that flow from 9/11, including the Patriot Act and habeas corpus for “enemy combatants.” In these revisions and additions, Smith has provided a valuable, timely collection that examines civil liberty reforms in the United States.
