Understanding Freedom of the Press

Personal Freedom & Civic Duty

Among other freedoms, the First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees a free press. This enlightening book examines the origins of freedom of the press in America and traces many of the important court battles that helped define that freedom. Further, the author explores the continuing evolution of the media today, including the ways in which technology may be changing the meaning of a free press. The text supports curricular requirements by looking at press freedom through the lenses of the law, history, and media literacy. Fascinating historical and recent news photographs enhance the narrative.
