Summary

Freedom of speech is a topic under much debate, and this volume explains the original wording, subsequent amendments, and cases through which it has evolved, and examines the current protection a citizen of the U.S. can expect to enjoy.

The Legal Almanac series serves to educate the general public on a variety of legal issues pertinent to everyday life and to keep readers informed of their rights and remedies under the law. Each volume in the series presents an explanation of a specific legal issue in simple, clearly written text, making the Almanac a concise and perfect desktop reference tool. All volumes provide state-by-state coverage. Selected state statutes are included, as are important case law and legislation, charts and tables for comparison.
