Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Cindy Lombardo
Featuring more than 14,000 entries this hefty reference set is the first encyclopedia to address specifically the political, historical, and cultural significance of the key components of the First Amendment of the Constitution - the development of freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble, and the right to petition the government. Beginning with the Colonial era and continuing to the present day, alphabetical entries provide information about the connections among the First Amendment and popular culture and the arts, social movements, religious and political organizations, landmark legal cases, critical legislation, and individual women and men whose actions influenced the Bill of Rights. Each entry includes recommendations for further reading and cross references to other relevant sections. Seven lengthy essays provide details on the various civil liberties protection offered by the First Amendment, how the amendment was incorporated, how it applies to the states, the future of the amendment, and how First Amendment rights are treated around the world. The alphabetical, topical, and case tables of contents make it easy to locate specific material quickly. The select bibliography comes with a separate section listing online resources. The interdisciplinary perspectives of this encyclopedia make it an especially useful tool for high school and college students as well as for legal scholars. Reviewer: Cindy Lombardo
Library Journal

Since the 1735 trial of newspaper publisher John Peter Zenger, the concepts of freedom of speech and press, as well as the right to religious freedom, freedom of assembly, and the right to petition government, have been imprinted in the political, cultural, and historical DNA of the United States, later enshrined in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Edited by political scientist Vile (Middle Tennessee State Univ.) and law professors David Hudson (Vanderbilt Univ.) and David Schultz (Hamline Univ.), this two-volume work devotes itself solely to the impact of the First Amendment. All three editors are well-published scholars, so they understand the needs of those who use reference materials such as this work. More than 200 contributors from the fields of law, journalism, and theology, along with the academic disciplines of political science, history, and religious studies, have written over 1400 topical entries, ranging in length from 250 to 1500 words, all addresing one of the five core freedoms of the First Amendment. Seven introductory essays by First Amendment scholars provide the context to these freedoms. Complemented by a chronology, a bibliography, and subject and case indexes, the A-to-Z entries cover small biographies (e.g., U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, journalist John Siegenthaler) and cases brought before the Supreme Court (e.g., Bates v. Little Rock; Anderson v. Liberty Lobby), as well as subjects of a more general variety, e.g., religious faith (e.g., Jehovah's Witnesses, Islam), issues (e.g., the pledge of allegiance; conscientious objection to military service), and organizations (the First Amendment Center; Free SpeechLeague).
