Editorial Reviews

Review


"Collins and Chaltain vividly bring to life inspiring but little-known, real-world stories of remarkable men and women who personally struggled with fear and freedom, thus endowing us with an enduring legacy of enhanced liberty. Superb in both substance and style, this book demonstrates that the defense of free speech epitomizes courage and patriotism."--Nadine Strossen, Professor, New York Law School, and Past President of the ACLU


"If you've ever wanted to know the life history of the First Amendment--the parties, the lawyers, the justices, the agony, the glory--this is the book for you!"--Geoffrey R. Stone, Professor, The University of Chicago Law School


"We Must Not Be Afraid to be Free is a well written and loving tribute to our First Amendment tradition and to the people who have given it life. The book is packed with original history and a deep understanding of the tensions internal to our commitments to freedom of speech. It is a major contribution to the First Amendment literature."--Steven H. Shiffrin, Charles Frank Reavis, Sr., Professor of Law, Cornell University


"A terrific, lively, informed, and engaging read that is certain to interest not only students but the general public. Collins and Chaltain's book is in a class of its own--a must read for anyone who cares about freedom."--David M. O'Brien, Leone Reaves and George W. Spicer Professor, University of Virginia, Department of Politics


"This engagingly written tour of First Amendment law will interest political scientists, prelaw and law students, and lawyers with a special interest in the subject. The authors present their expertise in a storytelling, literary style, and their authoritative mastery of their subject is evident." --Washington Lawyer



"Fascinating. Meticulously researched. [Collins and Chaltain] have written a book that every student of the First Amendment, especially every judge and justice, should read. Not only does it provide a thorough overview of free speech law, but its stories are a wonderful reminder of the people and lives that shaped constitutional law." --Erwin Chemerinsky, The Washington Independent Review of Books


"We Must not be Afraid to be Free skillfully blends history and doctrine, furnishing the reader with an introduction to core free speech cases through vivid and real-life accounts of the parties, judges, and attorneys involved. Collins and Chaltain thus successfully bring to life the law and history of the First Amendment, providing a deeply engaging work of scholarship for general readers and students of the law alike."--Harvard Law Review
