Gideon's trumpet by Anthony Lewis( Book )
68 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 3,544 libraries worldwide
This is a true story about Clarence Earl Gideon, a semi-literate drifter, who is arrested for breaking into a pool room and for petty theft. When he asks the court to appoint a lawyer for his defense because he cannot afford one, his request is denied. Acting as his own lawyer, Gideon is convicted and sent to jail. While in prison, he begins a hand-written campaign directed to the U.S. Supreme Court, contending that every defendant is entitled to legal representation. The Court agrees to hear Gideon's case, and, in a landmark decision, rules in his favor. Gideon is given a new trial and is found innocent and U.S. legal history is changed forever
Freedom for the thought that we hate : a biography of the First Amendment by Anthony Lewis( Book )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 1,806 libraries worldwide
More than any other people on earth, Americans are free to say and write what they think. The media can air the secrets of the White House, the boardroom, or the bedroom with little fear of punishment or penalty. The reason for this extraordinary freedom is not a superior culture of tolerance, but just fourteen words in our most fundamental legal document: the free expression clauses of the First Amendment to the Constitution. In this book, the story of how the right of free expression evolved along with our nation makes a compelling case for the adaptability of our constitution. Although Americans have gleefully and sometimes outrageously exercised their right to free speech since before the nation's founding, the Supreme Court did not begin to recognize this right until 1919. Freedom of speech and the press as we know it today is surprisingly recent. The author tells us how these rights were created, revealing a story of hard choices, heroic (and some less heroic) judges, and fascinating and eccentric defendants who forced the legal system to come face-to-face with one of America's great founding ideas

Glory and terror : the growing nuclear danger by Steven Weinberg( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 142 libraries worldwide
"Such a weapon would be "one sort of folly to which war is especially well suited: the lust for glory." The temptation to prize military glamour over sensible strategy has always been with us, as Weinberg shows in examples from the Middle Ages onward, but may have especially dangerous consequences in an age of high-tech arms."--BOOK JACKET
Figures of speech first amendment heroes and villains by William Bennett Turner( file )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 100 libraries worldwide
Recounting controversial First Amendment cases from the Red Scare era to Citizens United, William Bennett Turner?a Berkeley law professor who has argued three cases before the Supreme Court?shows how we?ve arrived at our contemporary understanding of free speech. His strange cast of heroes and villains, some drawn from cases he has litigated, includes Communists, Jehovah?s Witnesses, Ku Klux Klansmen, the world?s leading pornographer, prison wardens, dogged reporters, federal judges, a computer whiz, and a countercultural comedian. This is a fascinating look at how the scope of our First Amendment freedoms has evolved and the colorful characters behind some of the most important legal decisions of modern times. ?Turner tells fascinating stories of unlikely heroes and explains difficult legal issues clearly and concisely, educating and entertaining at the same time.??Elizabeth Farnsworth, The PBS News Hour
