This book is a comprehensive examination of speech out of doors -- the exercise of First Amendment liberties in the streets, parks, public squares, suburban neighborhoods, shopping malls, college campuses, and other places that comprise our "expressive topography." The author examines the steady erosion of that topography and offers some proposals for preserving this critical aspect of our expressive culture.
