First Amendment Stories

Andrew Koppelman

Newly in print is First Amendment Stories, coedited by Richard Garnett and myself, from Foundation Press. I’m very pleased at the impressive collection of talent that Rick managed to recruit. (I am happy to shout from the rooftops that he did most of the work, and I’m very grateful to him for letting me come along on the ride.) The essays detail the background of many of the leading cases involving the freedoms of speech and of the press.
