Rate this:
The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees a free press and free speech. Those rights, however, are not unlimited. In Clear and Present Danger: Schenck v. United States, award-winning author Susan Dudley Gold explores the events, issues, and personalities behind the landmark case. The Supreme Court's decision in Schenck set the standard for determining when speech is so inflammatory that it no longer qualifies for First Amendment protections. This comprehensive account of the case examines the efforts of the Court to protect the safety of the nation and its citizens while ensuring the broadest guarantees possible for free speech.
