Do courts adequately balance the rights of a free press? Under what conditions may the government refuse to release information to the news media? How can society protect itself from deceptive advertising? First Amendment questions like these are the focus of Communication Law. This introductory textbook addresses First Amendment issues that affect the general public, academics, business people, journalists, government officials, and broadcasters. This newly revised edition contains descriptions and analyses of recent and precedent-setting judicial decisions and is a valuable text for communication law courses in journalism, communication, and political science departments.
Joseph J. Hemmer, Jr. is Professor of Communication at Carroll College. He is the author of Communication Under Law: Free Speech and Communication Under Law: Journalistic Expression both from Scarecrow Press.
