The boundaries of freedom of expression & order in American democracy( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Monday, May 4, 1970, members of the Ohio National Guard, called onto the Kent State University campus to quell antiwar demonstrations, fired 61 roounds into a group of students protesting the U.S. invasion of Cambodia and Guard presence on campus. Thirteen seconds later, four students lay dead and nine were wounded. The tragedy of that day -- so representative of the civil, social, and political upheavals of the time -- placed this small Ohio college town at the center of continuing and heated debate and discussion. After decades of controversy surrounding the May 4 commemoration, the University moved in a new direction, choosing to use the 30th anniversary as an opportunity to recognize the past and embrace the future. A major component of this was the establishment of an annual scholarly symposium to focus on the great issues of American democracy. The Boundaries of Freedom of Expression and Order in American Democracy is the product of the first symposium, which explored the limits of freedom of expression in American society as they apply to business, education, media, law, politics, the Internet, and other venues. The book provides broad discussions of the past, present, and future of freedom of expression issues in the U.S. and in-depth analyses of such topics as hate speech, adademic freedom, threats to freedom of expression in public schools, and limiting Internet access in public libraries. The contributions to this book represent an impressive range of incisive analyses and commentary by leading First Amendment scholars, including the symposium's keynote speakers: Kathleen Sullivan, Dean of Stanford Law School; Anthony Lewis, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist of the New York Times and the author of two First Amendment books; and Cass Sunstein, Karl N. Llewellyn Professor of Jurisprudence at the University of Chicago Law School. The thought-provoking discussions of the challenges to freedom of expression today will be an invaluable resource not only for students of constitutional law and political theory and practice, but for anyone interested in the difficulties involved in determining when and how freedom can be limited in deference to other competing societal values. - Back cover

The Rehnquist court : justices, rulings, and legacy by Thomas R Hensley( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A detailed look at the Rehnquist Court's key figures, rulings, and major changes to U.S. constitutional law. A pawn in the changing landscapes of the last four presidencies, the Rehnquist Court has become a battleground for intense partisan politics. As the nation hung in constitutional crisis during the 2000 presidential election, the Court embodied the fierce struggle between conservative and liberal forces before handing down its landmark rulings. Has the Rehnquist Court, which followed the liberal Warren and Burger Courts, achieved a conservative counterrevolution? The answer to that question depends on one's political perspective, observes legal historian and political scientist Thomas R. Hensley. But without a doubt, the Rehnquist Court has been a war zone. Fourteen justices have served during the Rehnquist era, which began in 1986 during the Reagan administration and continues today. Presidents Reagan and Bush appointed conservative justices and set in motion an assault on the "ultra-liberal" decisions made by the two previous courts. But President Clinton appointed two moderate Democrats, slowing the conservative juggernaut. The result? One of the most fascinating, contentious, and crucial periods in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court

Teaching Political Science in a Study Abroad Program: An Examination ofImpacts on Student Attitudes by Thomas R Hensley( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper discusses the impact of a semester-abroad political science program on the attitudes and behavior of college students. Participants included 52 students in a 1977 Kent State University Geneva Semester Program. The hypothesis was that positive attitude changes on worldmindedness would: (1) occur among students participating in the study abroad program; (2) relate positively to the enjoyment of the students' overall experience; and (3) relate positively to the closeness of contact with non-Americans. For the study, questionnaires were administered which focused upon attitudes of worldmindedness, support for the United Nations, self-esteem, and ambiguity. Responses of participants in the study abroad program were compared with responses of 17 students in a class on international organization at Kent State University. Findings based on simple percentages and multiple regression analysis of responses indicated that significant change occurred on only one variable, self-esteem. The conclusion is that relatively brief experience in another culture has a limited impact on attitudes such as worldmindedness and ethnocentrism. A major implication of the study is that claims about the potential of overseas study programs to produce attitude and behavioral changes among student participants should be given careful scrutiny.
