Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Difficult First Amendment issues for libraries are now further complicated by the growth of Internet access. What may be or may not be legal is hard for the librarian, library director, or library board member to learn or understand. Peck (The Bill of Rights and the Politics of Interpretation) gives us a useful guide to these tricky constitutional issues. A good opening chapter presents 49 questions covering background information on the First Amendment. The next eight chapters discuss libraries, sexually oriented materials, materials considered offensive due to their political or moral content, religious issues, library confidentiality issues, workplace issues, children, and cyberspace. Peck presents complex laws and detailed court opinions with great clarity. His lengthy appendix includes the Library Bill of Rights plus model guides for access policies that cover Internet access. This easy-to-read and up-to-date overview on this complicated issue is recommended reading for all librarians and for use as a library school textbook.--Stephen L. Hupp, Swedenborg Memorial Lib., Urbana Univ., OH Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
