In Freedom of Expression in the Supreme Court, Terry Eastland brings together the Court's leading First Amendment cases, some 60 in all, starting with Schenck v. United States (1919) and ending with Reno v. American Civil Liberties Union (1998). Complete with a comprehensive introduction, pertinent indices and a useful bibliography, Freedom of Expression in the Supreme Court offers the general and specialized reader alike a thorough treatment of the Court's understanding on the First Amendment's speech, press, assembly, and petition clauses.

Editorial Reviews

Eastland has assembled an excellent collection of landmark U.S. Supreme Court cases and provides commentary dealing with free expression in a masterly introductory essay. Each of the 60 cases covered includes an informative statement of the facts, an explanation of the doctrine or test used in reaching the decision, and an account of how the Court later treated the precedent set by the case. Excerpts from Court opinions and major concurrences and dissents are carefully selected. 'Responses,' editorial comments from national newspapers and magazines, or statements from organizations affected by the rulings follow most cases. This unique feature provides thoughtful material for evaluating the cases. This book would be a splendid text for courses in constitutional law, political science, or journalism. Recommended for undergraduate, graduate, research, and professional collections.
