Speaking freely : trials of the First Amendment by Floyd Abrams ( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An eminent First Amendment advocate discusses his best-known cases in light of the current threat to America's freedom of speech. From the Patriot Act to Janet Jackson's Super Bowl show, recent events have embroiled America and its media in ongoing battles to maintain this country's freedom of expression. In this book, an attorney on the front lines of America's fight for uncensored expression for more than thirty years re-creates eight of his most important cases. With adversaries as diverse as Richard Nixon, Wayne Newton, and Rudy Giuliani, and allies as unlikely as Kenneth Starr and Senator Mitch McConnell, Abrams takes readers behind the scenes to examine his strategies, the ramifications of each of the decisions, and the long-term significance of each case, while presenting a look at the law in action
