The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Gideon's Trumpet follows the progress of the 1960 libel suit that pitted The New York Times against a Montgomery, Alabama, city official, and whose settlement in the Supreme Court redefined what newspapers, and ordinary citizens, can print or say.
“Superbly written... a compelling drama that clearly places the Sullivan decision in the context of the court's still evolving notions of free speech and fully illuminates the constitutional principles at stake...an essential guide.” —Boston Globe

This book is a wonderful exploration of American press freedom. Only after reading Prof. Lewis' book did I realize how crucial our freedoms of expression are to the preservation of the American Political Regime.
