Sometimes, citizens believe having freedom of speech means they can say anything with no consequences. But over time, laws and Supreme Court rulings have limited the full “freedom” of this right to exclude hate speech and other potentially harmful expressions. Through examples, historical context, and clear explanations, readers learn the full extent of their freedom of speech. Modern court cases, particularly those having to do with students, show the relevance of this right in readers’ lives. Fact boxes, sidebars, historical images, and full-color photographs add even more information about the history of the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment.
