Overview

The Teen Rights and Freedoms series examines the perceived or actual legal rights that impact the daily lives of teens. Coverage includes constitutionally protected liberties such as the right to free speech as well as emerging rights related to contemporary issues such as electronic devices and the Internet. Each volume uses the well-known Greenhaven anthology format to explore a specific right or freedom, with material drawn from a diverse selection of primary and secondary sources, including Supreme Court decisions and personal narratives. Volume content is selected and arranged to examine-and help explain-the major social and legal controversies surrounding each featured right, as well as the responsibilities that accompany a specific right or freedom. Each illustrated volume contains an annotated table of contents; a volume-specific introduction and chronology; a list of organizations to contact; bibliographies; and a comprehensive subject index. The multifaceted approach of Teen Rights and Freedoms makes the series an excellent resource for better understanding the complex, broad, and evolving legal issues facing American teens.
