Governments throughout history have struggled to define the boundaries of the right to freedom of speech. Even though the United States explicitly articulates freedom of speech in the First Amendment to the Constitution, the judicial branch frequently reinterprets the amendment by allowing laws to limit that freedom. In ""Reflections on Freedom of Speech and the First Amendment"", noted legal theorist George Anastaplo details the history and intellectual foundations of freedom of speech, using examples from Socrates, Jesus, and Sir Thomas More. Anastaplo pays particular attention to freedom of speech as it relates to the U.S. Constitution, and he describes potential First Amendment issues, such as cases involving the Internet. Anastaplo provides an in-depth look at a controversial issue, and he defines freedom of speech in precise terms for both scholars and those interested in one of our most cherished rights.

MEDIA REVIEWS

""Drawing on the Socratic tradition in political philosophy as well as on British and American traditions of constitutional law, Anastaplo shows why freedom of speech is essential to republican government."" -- "Eugene F. Miller, University of Georgia"


""Anastaplo's understanding of the importance of thoughtful speech for good government allows him to offer chapters on individuals and books or documents that standard treatments of the first amendment do not cover."" -- "Murray Dry, author of Civil Peace and the Quest for Truth: The First Amendment "


""Distinctive, self-assured, audaciously unconventional, and challenging. Those within Anastaplo's circles will want to look at this book for its skilled and precise rendition of established fare. And those outside those circles, who are less familiar with Anastaplo's concerns, or even those ill-disposed toward those circles, should yet find the book worth careful reading and deliberation."" -- "Ira L. Strauber, Grinnell College, Law & Politics"
