Werhan (constitutional law, Tulane U.) presents the synthesis of the core jurisprudence of the First Amendment's protection of freedom of speech that he has developed over 20 years of teaching and writing in the field. He covers the history of freedom of speech in the US, what makes freedom of speech special, the problem of subversive advocacy and the central meaning of freedom of speech, the central organizing principles of the jurisprudence, and the codified and the procedural First Amendment. Like other volumes in the series, this one is intended to be accessible to general educated readers as well as to members of the law profession, and so is written in plain English.
