Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Though admitting that contemporary free speech critics provide important lessons at times, Bunker (journalism, U. of Alabama) rejects many of their conclusions. Rather than an exhaustive treatment of First Amendment theory and interdisciplinary scholarship, he offers a series of related but distinct essays exploring various aspects, sometimes a particular theorist and sometimes a group.
