Abstract:

"On an almost daily basis, conflicts between our most cherished values and freedom of speech arise. Degrees of value are imposed upon speech as more and more cases are being decided based on a judge's subjective opinion of what is "good" and what is "bad.""

"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.
