The First Amendment is one of the most interesting, iconic, and vexing parts of the United States Constitution. Freedom of speech is a celebrated American right, yet there are bounds enforced in the interest of safety. This book explores the changing definitions and boundaries of free speech in democracies around the world and over time, compares current legal interpretations of free speech in the United States to those in other democratic nations, and asks readers to decide for themselves where the line should be drawn.
