Quantity: 1 available


In this original reassessment of the First Amendment, the distinguished political philosopher David Lowenthal reaches unorthodox yet compelling conclusions about the place of free speech and religion in the American constitutional order. Professor Lowenthal demonstrates that the framers of the Constitution and Bill of Rights had an understanding of freedom quite different from that to which we have grown accustomed. They recognized that freedom without limits degenerates into mere license, itself a threat to freedom. 315 pages, including index. Heavy boards. Prior owners name blacked out on inside cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
