Product Description

This First Amendment casebook puts the power of a formidable author team focusing on freedoms of speech, expression, and religion. Using cases, excerpted scholarship, and notes, this casebook continues to provide a thorough treatment of these critical areas in constitutional law.

Comprehensive, cogent treatment balances historical, theoretical, and practical approaches;
Authors highly regarded in the field for the passion and erudication of both their teaching and their scholarship;
Developed from the authors' highly successful Constitutional Law casebook, the text offers more updated and in-depth coverage of First Amendment issues than the parent book;
Equally useful with a wide range of constitutional law casebooks;
Numerous well-crafted problems reinforce learning and build practical skills;
Three-quarters of the text is devoted to the topic of free speech, with the remaining quarter dedicated to religion;
The entire book is updated with case and note material on major new Supreme Court decisions and the First Amendment implications of September 11;
Notes have been streamlined;
Major recent cases include: Boy Scouts of America v. Dale (rights of gays in private organizations), United States v. Playboy Entertainment Group (televising sexual material), Hill v. Volorado (dealing with limits on anti-abortion demonstrations near health facilities), City of Erie v. Pap's A.M. (illustrating prohibitions on public nudity), and Zelman v. Simmons-Harris (constitutionality of school voucher programs).
