First Amendment, First Principles: Verbal Acts and Freedom of Speech
"In First Amendment, First Principles, attorney John Wirenius explores these and other challenges to freedom of speech. In his rethinking of the concept of freedom of speech, he examines the evolution of the current understanding (and misunderstanding) of the meaning of the First Amendment. What Wirenius writes is a thorough, scholarly examination of the body of law surrounding free speech and a passionate defense of how he feels the First Amendment should be treated. Wirenius reminds us that we must protect the First Amendment in order for it to protect us."--Jacket.
