Description

"In Speaking Freely, Abrams offers us a privileged peek into the inner workings of constitutional law. In a clear, direct, and open style, he provides citizens with a rare opportunity to understand how our most fundamental rights and liberties are questioned, defended and defined. From the Pentagon Papers to campaign finance reform, Abrams traces the evolution of the First Amendment and introduces us to the editors, the lawyers, the senators, and the justices who have threatened and preserved the cherished American right of speaking freely." -BOOK JACKET
