Editorial Reviews


'Blumberg's great contribution is to put the repressive, politically motivated Sedition Act prosecutions (and related state and common law prosecutions) in the context of a larger set of repressive doctrines and attitudes and to show how they often functioned synergistically to repress political critics.' Michael Kent Curtis, Journal of American History

Book Description

This volume explains how America adopted the widely deplored Sedition Act of 1798 and how it undermined the political ideals of the American Revolution. It examines the limitations to freedom of speech imposed by these repressive doctrines and why this law remained unchallenged until well into the twentieth century. This book will be of interest to all interested in the Early Republic, freedom of speech, and of American constitutional jurisprudence.
