Press Freedom in Early America and Interpretation of the First Amendment. Author Kenneth Shear collects extensive source material demonstrating the deep roots of free expression in America. He also challenges judges and scholars who have proposed to narrow the press freedom guarantee because they misunderstand the origins of the First Amendment, and he shows that historical sources do indeed support broad modern interpretations of freedom of the press.
