Editorial Reviews


"The slimness of the volume is inversely related to the heft of the book's achievement, which is that it advances a bold, innovative new understanding about why the First Amendment exists and the purposes it serves. . . . The argument is carefully drawn and intellectually challenging, making the book an absolute must read for experienced constitutional scholars as well as for readers just beginning their explorations into constitutional theory."—S.B. Lichtman, Choice
(S.B. Lichtman Choice)

Selected as a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2012 for U.S. Politics within the Social and Behavioral Sciences category.
(Outstanding Academic Title Choice 2013-06-10)

Book Description

A leading legal scholar develops a theory of First Amendment rights and academic freedom that reconciles the need for democratic legitimation with the need to develop and distribute professional expertise.
