From the same authorship team behind the highly successful Constitutional Law and among the leading casebooks in the field, The First Amendment provides a comprehensive and accessible review of speech and religion jurisprudence under the First Amendment. The eminent authorship team, whose members are distinguished both in teaching and scholarship, combines textual, historical, theoretical, and doctrinal approaches in an inclusive and creative survey of the essential elements of modern First Amendment doctrine. It has been completely updated to incorporate recent developments in the field, including campaign finance and government speech, and provides a broader discussion of modern First Amendment issues, including those related to modern technology.
