Philosophers, academics, and judges have offered opinions regarding the nature, scope, purpose, and function of the First Amendment. In this volume, Hemmer provides a cursory biography of the authors of 34 theories, a brief snippet of the author’s writing, and, in some instances, a description of the impact or effect of the theory on legal doctrine or societal concerns. The work is designed for college undergraduates, and each chapter ends with questions for study. Moreover, a thorough bibliography allows a detailed examination of the primary as well as secondary sources.
