Editorial Reviews

Review

"In The Constitution of Electoral Speech Law, Brian Pinaire provides a thorough and insightful dissection of the Supreme Court's now commonplace forays into the electoral process. ...Pinaire has provided a rigorous and sophisticated piece of work that is a valuable addition both to our understanding of electoral speech law as well as the making of constitutional law generally."—David K. Ryden, American Review of Politics


"This book offers an important analysis of the conceptions and rhetorical modes used by justices to frame and decide cases involving electoral speech. In doing so, the author demonstrates control of the literature on election law, democratic theory, and the process of Supreme Court decision making."—Perspectives on Politics


"Pinaire's volume is a worthy read for those interested in legal development...Few other volumes are devoted to an understanding of how the Supreme Court blends disparate lines of legal thought. It is a welcome addition to the literature." —Law and Politics Book Review


"Pinaire has addressed in depth the elements and episodes that comprises the rules and regulations governing electoral speech law in the US...This is an exceptionally fine analytical treatise covering the intersection of policy and law in the area of electoral free speech."—CHOICE


"I know of no other work that adopts the analytical framework advanced by Pinaire; nor do I know of any other work that so carefully joins together the scholarly traditions regarding the legal regulation of speech, on the one hand, and the legal regulation of the electoral process, on the other." —Timothy V. Kaufman-Osborn, Whitman College

Format: Hardcover
This book is a ground breaking tour de force--detailed, nuanced and full of insights. Pinaire's research combines a sweeping historical analysis of important Supreme Court cases with focused case studies of recent legal controversies. Best of all, he manages to untangle complex legal theories with conceptual clarity and an engaging writing style. I learned a lot from this book, and highly recommend it to anyone interested in the interface of constitutional law and free speech debates.
