The Free Speech Century

Lee C. Bollinger (Columbia University) and Geoffrey R. Stone (University of Chicago Law School), The Free Speech Century (Oxford University Press 2018).

“In The Free Speech Century, Lee C. Bollinger and Geoffrey R. Stone have gathered a group of the nation’s leading legal scholars to evaluate the evolution of free speech doctrine since Schenk and to assess where it might be headed in the future. Since 1919, First Amendment jurisprudence in America has been a signal development in the history of constitutional democracies. Publishing on the 100th anniversary of Schenk, this volume will serve as an essential overview for anyone interested in how our understanding of the First Amendment transformed over time and why it continues to change to this day.”
