From one of the country’s most esteemed experts on the First Amendment and the author of the classic Gideon’s Trumpet, an eloquent essay on the importance of freedom of expression

The Barnes & Noble Review

You might figure that decades spent examining government would turn a fellow into a dejected cynic. Thus, it is heartening that Anthony Lewis, the longtime New York Times Op-Ed page columnist and veteran Supreme Court observer, still feels so much reverence for the federal government's judicial branch. Indeed, his reverence is not just heartening, it's infectious. At a time when the judiciary comes under frequent attack, his Freedom for the Thought That We Hate makes a compelling case that our much-maligned judges deserve credit for "many of the great advances in the quality -- and decency -- of American society."
